The Seattle Foundation’s annual day of community giving, GiveBIG, is coming up on May 10, 2017. It has become an important day for most of the nonprofit organizations in the area. Last year GiveBIG generated $22 million in contributions to area nonprofits, as compared to $16.2 million in 2015.
The theme of this year’s GiveBIG is “Now More Than Ever.” That’s especially true for your contributions to GreenStage. We’re busy working on our four FREE summer plays for 2017, and while there is no charge for GreenStage shows, there is a cost, and your contributions every spring help us create the costumes, build the props, print the programs, buy the chocolate Shakespeare coins, and do the zillion other things it takes to put on more than 60 performances of the Bard’s fantastic plays each summer.
GiveBIG includes a new “Dollars for Change” effort this year that could mean bonus donations of $2,500 to your favorite nonprofits (such as us!); your contributions go further than usual through GiveBIG!
Schedule your contributions beginning April 27
The GiveBIG day of giving will last almost two weeks! You can schedule your donations ahead of time beginning April 27—perfect so you don’t forget or if you’re going to be out of town during the 24 hours of contributions on May 10. Naturally, we will still remind you—repeatedly! DONATE HERE or by clicking the GiveBIG logo above. We thank you for supporting GreenStage and your other favorite nonprofit organizations on this important day.
More incentives to GiveBIG!
Each donor to GreenStage on May 10 will be entered for a chance to win a GreenStage Queen’s Box Experience. The Queen’s Box is the best seat in the house at the performance of your choice. Sit up front and center, with comfy chairs and a basket of snacks, beverages, and GreenStage chocolate coins.
Donate $100 or more and we’ll thank you with your choice of a GreenStage picnic blanket or season T-Shirt.
We thank you for the support that makes our free performances possible.
