What is Dollars for Change?
Dollars for Change is a new donor-driven effort that will award more than $350,000 to participating King County nonprofits. Donors will be chosen to have their contribution to an organization generously boosted with a $2,500 award. These Dollars for Change awards will be made to King County-based organizations across Seattle Foundation's Healthy Community Framework and across budget size. Dollars for Change will benefit nonprofits of all sizes, but will place a greater emphasis on small- and mid-sized organizations.
How does Dollars for Change work?
Multiple GiveBIG donors will be chosen every hour over a 15-hour period, starting at 7 a.m. PDT on Wednesday, May 10. The selected donor's gift will be leveraged and the GiveBIG nonprofit they contributed to will receive an additional $2,500 award through Dollars for Change. Donations made up to that point that meet the criteria, including gifts made during the pre-giving period of April 27 - May 9, will be eligible to be selected for Dollars for Change. Unfortunately, as this is a King County event, nonprofits outside of King County are not eligible.
