2015 GiveBIG: Results are In!

May 5, 2015, marked GiveBIG, The Seattle Foundation’s annual day of philanthropy! For one day, ALL gifts made on The Seattle Foundation website in support of Teen Feed were being leveraged by a generous stretch pool. And thanks to a special donor, gifts of $250+ were matched dollar-for-dollar, more than doubling support of youth who need it the most!

On Tuesday, May 5th, our community came together and GaveBIG, raising $21,700+ for youth at Teen Feed! All gifts of $250 were also matched dollar-for-dollar, raising a grand total of $35,500+ for youth working hard for their futures. We are touched and inspired by this demonstration of support. This generosity will provide warm meals, support, healthcare access and street outreach youth need to make positive choices, meet their goals, and achieve stability.

Missed GiveBIG? It’s not too late to have your gift of $250 or more matched dollar-for dollar! To inspire your giving, a special donor has agreed to match all gifts of $250 made in the month of May, dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000 (as funds last)! This tremendous generosity will *double your impact* for youth in need!
– Your gift of $250 will become $500
– Your gift of $500 will become $1,000
– Your gift of $1,000 will become $2,000
– Your gift of $2,500 will become $5,000
