Giving BIG is so Bus!
GiveBIG provides a unique opportunity—the only day of the year—where ANY amount you give is amplified to make the biggest possible impact. And we’re down with that. Because no matter what giving level you choose, it has a direct impact on your community by providing the fuel to effectively engage young people in civic life through our Fellowship, Campus, and Engagement programs. We turn your dollars into real people-powered action by registering and turning out thousands of young voters, investing in the leadership development of youth from marginalized communities, moving the dial on policies that will make our state a more equitable and just place to live, and meeting people where they are to take their first civic action.
Every donation made to the Washington Bus Education Fund via the Seattle Foundation’s website on Tuesday, May 10th will be stretched!
Want a more personal connection on GiveBig? Come to the Bus office re-warming party from 6-8pm at Bus HQ (307 3rd Ave S, Suite 530, Seattle WA 98104)! Meet our incredible new staff, make your gift in person, and have some drinks and snacks on (B)us!
May 10, 2017 from 8:00AM to 11:55PM
