May 15 and GiveBIG Approaches!

In two more weeks Washington Bikes will participate in one of the largest philanthropic events in the Northwest!

GiveBIG 2013 arrives on Wednesday, May 15, providing an opportunity for the Puget Sound region and surrounding communities to give generously to over 1400 non-profits that are making a difference in our community and quality of life. Between midnight and midnight (PDT) on May 15, each donation made will receive a pro-rated portion of matching funds from both The Seattle Foundation and multiple GiveBIG sponsors. The amount of the match will depend on the size of the matching fund pool and how much is raised in total donations on GiveBIG day.

We encourage supporters of our mission to grow bicycling in Washington State and create a more bike and pedestrian friendly landscape to mark your calendar and make a donation on May 15! To learn more about our programs and current need, visit Seattle Foundation’s  Bicycle Alliance Donation Page.

GiveBIG is only possible with the generous support of community-minded organizations that contribute matching funds making this event a unique and even bigger financial success. We’d like to thank them with the hope you’ll support them in your future purchasing and investment decisions.

In addition to The Seattle Foundation, individual donors and sponsors like Seattle International Foundation, Bezos Family Foundation, Boeing, Microsoft, Medina Foundation, and Starbucks, we’d like to acknowledge the Seattle Sounders for partnering with GiveBIG and promoting the event at their games.

So mark your calendar for May 15 and while you’re at it make sure to  RSVP on our GiveBIG 2013 Facebook event page to get upcoming reminders from us!
