If you’ve been having difficulty donating for GiveBIG, you’re not alone! The site has been down for the majority of the day. It’s been a frustrating experience for everyone – and we thank you for your patience as the Seattle Foundation and their partners (donation service Kimbia) have been working on a technical solution. The Seattle Foundation has decided to extend GiveBIG until midnight tomorrow, 5/4! You can donate here on the official GiveBIG site- or, if you encounter difficulty, please visit our donation page and check “GiveBIG.”
Anyone who has donated, has scheduled a donation, or donates through our site for GiveBIG will still be entered to win a soccer ball signed by Erik Friberg, #28, and 10 tickets to the Seattle Sounders FC vs. NYC FC game on June 25th! Many thanks to our generous partner, the Seattle Sounders for making this possible. Spread the word and together, we can make this the greatest GiveBIG ever, despite technical glitches!
if there are any other updates regarding GiveBIG, we’ll let you know! We typically post our news first on social media, so make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter if you would like information in real time.
Wait…what is GiveBIG?
The Ronald McDonald House is joining more than 1,000 nonprofits in the Greater Seattle area in participating in GiveBIG, a one-day online fundraiser from the Seattle Foundation. Every donation you give to the House on the GiveBIG site will be stretched further by bonus matching funds from the Foundation so your money will support even more families at RMHC.
