Give Small? No. GiveBig! ;)


GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event, inspiring people to give generously to the nonprofit organizations (like Seattle Public Library!!) that make our region a healthier and more vital place to live.

Each donation up to $5,000 per donor, per organization, made to the 1,600 nonprofit organizations profiled on The Seattle Foundation’s website between midnight and midnight Pacific Time on Tuesday, May 6, 2014, will receive a prorated portion of The Seattle Foundation’s matching funds, or “stretch pool.” The amount of the “stretch” depends on how much is raised in total donations on GiveBIG day.  As long as you have access to the web and a credit card, you can participate!

You can also narrow your search to organizations that are geared to, staffed by, or serving teens…  Nonprofit orgs 4 teens.  This list includes many organizations near ‘n dear to our library ❤ including (but not limited to):

If you can GiveBig.  If you can’t then give small.  If you still can’t, check out this list of ways to give back to your community!

Show your support for the Library and GiveBIG for Books today!

Today and today only, the community-wide GiveBIG event is in full-swing.  All day today you can support the Library with your donations by going online and donating to The Seattle Public Library Foundation.

The campaign is called GiveBIG For Books because all donations made today (May 2) will help add books and materials to the Library’s collection.

The first $25,000 donated will be matched by a group of generous Foundation donors and The Friends of SPL.
