GiveBIG to Trails on May 2nd!

Posted by LisaC at Apr 11, 2012 12:35 PM |

GiveBIG - REAL BIG - to WTA through The Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG match campaign from 12am to 11:59pm on May 2nd!

Last year, YOU helped WTA raise more than $22,000 from The Seattle Foundation's extraordinary one-day GiveBIG campaign. On a day that the Seattle philanthropic community was urging their supporters to give, WTA's members came out in droves to support and promote our work throughout the day.

This year's GiveBIG challenge will be held on May 2. Simply go online at The Seattle Foundation anytime on that day and make a gift to WTA through its website. WTA will receive 100% of what you give, plus additional matching funds for a portion of your contribution.

What's more, every hour The Seattle Foundation will randomly draw one donation from all donations made in the previous one-hour timeslot and award $1,000 to the nonprofit that received the "Golden Ticket." Last year, Washington Trails Association was the only non-profit that won TWO Golden Tickets. It made us very happy.

Let's see if we can repeat!

WTA is one of hundreds of local nonprofit organizations rallying its supporters to participate in GiveBIG. In the spirit of friendly competition, we hope you'll give as generously as possible. The more you and your fellow hikers contribute, the greater WTA's share of matching funds - and the more we can achieve for trails.

Whether you're a loyal member or considering your first gift to WTA, we hope you'll bookmark WTA's page at The Seattle Foundation, share the link with your friends, and then go online on May 2 to GiveBIG for trails. Thanks!
