We’ve gotten a lot of requests for ways to help your supporters more easily make donations on GiveBIG day, so we developed a new tool that we hope will do just that. This one-page document outlines how easy it is to find nonprofit organizations and make donations through our website. Check it out here: How GiveBIG Works: Making an Online Donation. (It’s also posted on our GiveBIG Resources for Nonprofits page, along with another new resource: a sample email for your donors.)
Also, just a reminder that all edits to existing nonprofit profiles on our website must be submitted by this Wednesday, April 18. Which, by the way, is only two weeks before the big day!
Hope you’re getting as excited for GiveBIG 2012 as we are!
Just a reminder of some upcoming important dates:
- Our public launch date of GiveBIG 2012 is Monday, April 2. We have asked that our nonprofit partners wait until then to alert your networks and begin the push for GiveBIG, to maximize impact and create excitement around the event.
- If you don’t have a profile on our website yet, you must submit a new profile request no later than Wednesday, April 4 for GiveBIG on May 2. Please visit our website at www.seattlefoundation.org/nonprofits to get started with a new profile request.
- The deadline to update an already existing web profile is Wednesday, April 18.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to post a comment here or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
We just wanted to say thank you, thank you, for all your work in getting the word out about GiveBIG! All your efforts have worked–we’ve had an amazing response so far. As of 1:00pm–six hours in–we’ve raised $1.87 million with an incredible 8,307 individual gifts made!
We’ll continue to update you about all things GiveBIG today and in the days following. But we just really wanted to express our gratitude for your partnership and all your amazing hard work to make this event a success. We’re making history!

Here’s a tip when linking to your organization on The Seattle Foundation’s website:
As you get the word out to your supporters about GiveBIG, we definitely encourage you to use your organization’s direct URL in donor letters, emails, Facebook posts, etc. This will help drive your fans and supporters to your organization’s specific donation page on GiveBIG day, June 23. You can find your URL by searching for your organization on www.seattlefoundation.org, and when on your nonprofit profile page, looking in the address bar. Anything that is after the “aspx” is not necessary for your supporters to find your page, and you can simplify your URL by deleting anything after that. So, your “clean” URL will look something like this: http://www.seattlefoundation.org/npos/Pages/YOURORGANIZATION.aspx. And if your organization’s name is “Save the Planet,” then your “clean” URL will look like this: http://www.seattlefoundation.org/npos/Pages/SavethePlanet.aspx.
