Thank you to everyone who made a contribution to 501 Commons through The Seattle Foundation's annual GiveBIG fundraising day! We appreciate your generosity and willingness to make an important investment in our region's nonprofits. Your gift will go a long way in increasing our social sector's capacity to fulfill their missions.

We’d like to thank everyone who made a generous donation to 501 Commons through The Seattle Foundation’s annual GiveBIG fundraising day.

Your gift will go a long way in strengthening our state’s thriving nonprofit sector. 501 Commons will use your contributions to further help our community’s nonprofits amplify their impact. Our service programs, Executive Service Corps volunteers, Statewide Nonprofit Resource Directory partners, training events and cohort programs equip nonprofits with the means, knowledge, systems and foundations necessary to better serve their missions.

All in all, GiveBIG raised a total of $16.3 million for nonprofit organizations across Washington State. This is a 12 percent increase from last year’s giving total of $13.9 million. Of that amount, an astonishing $14.3 million was generated through online donations by individuals. This year also saw a 16 percent increase in total donors. Well done!

We are inspired by the generosity of our region. Thank you to everybody who gave a financial contribution to 501 Commons and other organizations. We appreciate our board members, Executive Service Corps volunteers, staff, Resource Directory partners, clients, friends, and donors for making this important investment in our community.

Thank you for being a #501Friend!
