We invite you, your friends, and neighbors to give generously to organizations who are making a difference in our communities to join us on May 5 and 6, for GiveBIG. This year’s two-day event is especially crucial given the COVID-19 outbreak, and our ability to continue to offer quality programs to all kids and teens in our community.
Please help us and other Seattle area nonprofits continue to make a difference now, and well into the future, by donating through GiveBIG.
All donations will be doubled, up to $25,000, stretching your gift even further for Club kids. A BIG thanks to our generous donors who are matching gifts!
Donate Now Through May 6
We are open now to help care for kids of essential workers. When we’re not addressing a global pandemic, our Clubs open our doors to thousands of kids and teens each year. We are a safe, affordable, and fun place for youth during the out-of-school time. We offer before school, after school, summer, and athletics programs, as well as leadership and service opportunities for teens throughout the year.
Our Clubs serve thousands of kids and families every year who are in need of financial assistance. Given this unprecedented pandemic, we are fast-tracking scholarships to get as many kids into the Clubs as possible whose families need financial support.
Funds raised from GiveBIG will be used to provide access to affordable, quality programming designed to keep kids active and intellectually challenged throughout the year.
I GiveBIG to the Rainier Vista Boys & Girls Club where I have served on the board for many years. There are so many reasons I do this. Our Club offers kids and teens who need it most a safe place where they can play sports, get a warm meal, have help with their homework, get mentorship, and so much more.
As a transplant who now calls the Puget Sound my home, I see Boys & Girls Clubs as a critical backbone / “conduit” which acts to support and bridge the next generation of our rapidly diversifying communities. By GIVING BIG, I can provide safe and positive places where the next generation of our community feels welcome, comes to learn, play and most importantly grow together.
