Where Imagination Comes Alive. . . Through GiveBIG!

Give Big Banner THANKS2

Seattle Children’s Museum is so grateful for champions like you and your support on 5-5-15 during The Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG. A total of 29 donations were made, which came to $27,400. We thank you so much for your generosity!

GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations to make our region a stronger, more vibrant community for all.

Donations to the Museum support our renovation projects, allow us to open our doors free of charge to low-income families, support local artists and performers inside the Museum, and provide a safe, clean, and educational place for children ages 10 and younger to explore and play with their families.

Thank you for considering a gift to Seattle Children’s Museum through GiveBIG. If you have questions about the Museum’s involvement with this initiative, contact our Director of Advancement Kirk Laughlin at klaughlin@thechildrensmuseum.org. For general information, go to The Seattle Foundation’s main GiveBIG page.

Your donation with go further on May 5th!

The Seattle Foundation generously uses contributions from GiveBIG sponsors to create “stretch pool” that matches a percentage of donations made that day. That means the more our donors give to Seattle Children’s Museum on May 5th, the more of this additional “stretch pool” funding we’ll qualify for.

There are ways you can help us on GiveBIG day:

  • Mark your calendar for May 5th to donate through our GiveBIG page (starting at 12:01 a.m.).
  • On May 5th, make a donation through our GiveBIG page (you have until midnight – but do not wait until then!)

  • E-mail your friends! Before GiveBIG or on the day itself, e-mail your friends, colleagues and family members to let them know you care about Seattle Children’s Museum, and encourage them to make a donation through our GiveBIG page.
  • Spread the word to your own friends and followers through social media. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter – and when you see our announcements about GiveBIG, share those with your own network of followers and friends.

Some things to know:  

  • Donations must be made on May 5th to count toward GiveBIG.
  • Your donations are only counted in our GiveBIG total if they are made through our GiveBIG page.
  • Donations can only be made by credit card for GiveBIG (unfortunately, gifts by check, cash or other means do not count for this campaign).
  • There are “random” prizes! Every hour of GiveBIG, one random donor will be selected to receive a Golden Ticket. Each Golden Ticket winner receives a $100 Starbucks card – and an additional $1,000 will be donated to the nonprofit organization they supported.
