Donate today to certain local arts groups and non-profits and the Seattle Foundation will match a share of it as part of GiveBIG day, a one-day online giving challenge set up by the non-profit resource support group. Tacoma arts organizations involved in the day include the Museum of Glass, Tacoma Art Museum, Broadway Center and Tacoma Musical Playhouse, as well as Centerstage Theatre in Federal Way and other non-profit community groups such as the YMCA.
Donations can be made until midnight tonight to qualify for the GiveBIG match.
Last year’s GiveBIG day raised almost $50,000 for the Museum of Glass, and this year’s contributions will support exhibition, education and Hot Shop programs.
Throughout the day, donations will be chosen at random to receive a Golden Ticket, which gives an additional $1,000 to the non-profit of the donor’s choice. Non-profits will also be eligible to win pairs of round-trip Alaska Airlines tickets and Starbucks gift cards.
Donations must be made through the Seattle Foundation’s website at seattlefoundation.org/givebig. For more information call 206-515-2109.
