Two local nonprofits to participate in GiveBIG on May 8

GiveBIG

What: Regional online charitable giving event

When: Through Wednesday, May 8.

On the web: www.givebig2019.org

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.

GiveBIG donations can be made to participating nonprofits now through midnight on Wednesday, May 8 at www.givebig2019.org.

To donate to the North Olympic Land Trust, an organization dedicated to conservation of open spaces, local food, local resources, healthy watersheds and recreational opportunities, go to www.givebig2019.org/north-olympic-land-trust.

To donate to the Dungeness River Audubon Center, which provides educational programs and enjoyable events in the natural sciences for people of all ages, go to www.givebig2019.org/dungeness-river-audubon-center.
