Last year was thought to mark the final GiveBIG after its longtime host the Seattle Foundation announced it was no longer going to present the regional, online charitable giving day. In response, however, more than 100 organizations formed the Nonprofit Giving Day Coalition and 501 Commons was selected as the new host of GiveBIG slated for Wednesday, May 8.

With GiveBIG back on track, two Clallam County nonprofits are participating: The North Olympic Land Trust, along with the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, who will match the first $2,000 in donations to the Dungeness River Audubon Center.

Since 2011, GiveBIG has generated more than $113 million for nonprofits across Washington.

“GiveBIG highlights the power of community by giving every individual the opportunity to positively impact the collective support for local organizations working to improve the quality of life in our region,” North Olympic Land Trust executive director Tom Sanford said.
