GiveBIG Toolkit

We are excited to share our GiveBIG toolkit, including graphic elements, in an easily downloadable format to market your giving campaign.

Register by March 29th!

All nonprofits wishing to participate will need to take action on their profile by March 29. We highly encourage nonprofits to complete registration by March 29 as well, in order to be included in The Seattle Times GiveBIG Giving Guide. Registration is complete when you’ve updated your GiveBIG profile, registered for Stripe, and clicked the “Submit for Approval” button. Your profile will then be approved and published to the GiveBIG website. Remember, after you complete registration and are approved, you can continue to update details on your profile through April 12.
