How it Works!
Donations made midnight to midnight on Wednesday, May 2, to PEPS (and other non profit organizations) through The Seattle Foundation's online giving center will be matched by The Seattle Foundation and GiveBIG’s corporate sponsors, who have put $500,000 into the “stretch pool.”
In addition, donors are chosen throughout the day at random to have their charity of choice—PEPS—receive an additional $1,000 from GiveBIG’s sponsors. This year, the selected donors will also be eligible to win a Starbucks gift card worth $100!
In 2011, during GiveBIG, $4.1 million was raised to support over 900 nonprofits in our community.
Renew your support of PEPS on May 2!
If you plan to support PEPS in 2012, please do so on May 2. Our goal is to raise $5,000 in support of our volunteer resource program which will help us to recruit, train, evaluate, and recognize 16 volunteer facilitators to form 16 PEPS Groups (that's about how many groups we form in a month!).
Triple Match Opportunity!
An anonymous PEPS donor has agreed to match the first 10 gifts of $100 made on May 2 to PEPS!
