What is GIVEBIG Washington?

GiveBIG Washington helps nonprofits raise money, gain new supporters, and increase their profile in the community.

Every spring, the excitement for GiveBIG builds through grassroots-based word-of-mouth, social media, an extensive multimedia promotional campaign, and local celebrities and sports teams firing up the community to show their generosity.

At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on.

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

This year's GiveBIG campaign kicks off April 20, 2021 and culminates with 48 hour giving event on May 4-5 2021!

Why Donate to Empowering Youth and Families GiveBig Campaign?

EYFO noticed our youth falling through the cracks in the south end of Seattle. We saw they were looking for a safe place to go, one that would encourage them to flourish. Because of this great need, for almost 20 years EYFO has been helping to solve this problem by guiding and mentoring young people, in particular the disfranchised ones, reach adulthood with the skills and support needed to achieve their goals and to contribute to a just and humane world.
