Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 6, when The Seattle Foundation sponsors GiveBig. The program’s goal is to make it easy for donors to contribute online to their favorite charities.
Originally, The Seattle Foundation matched donations for every participating non-profit, but the campaign was so successful there wasn’t enough matching money to go around. Last year, the net match after fees was about 6%.
You are invited to donate to Plymouth Church through GiveBig. The Seattle Foundation will forward your contribution to Plymouth plus the additional 6%.
It’s important to note that donations through GiveBig are actually donations to The Seattle Foundation. Therefore, your donation receipt for tax purposes comes from The Seattle Foundation. Be sure to print the email receipt that is automatically sent to you after you donate. Then you’ll have it for your taxes at the end of the year. Plymouth Church is unable to provide tax deductible contribution receipts for GiveBig.
If you have questions, please contact Diane Jacobsen or myself. Thank you for your generosity.
