What is Dollars for Change?

Dollars for Change will award more than $250,000 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. The $250,000 for Dollars for Change is provided by Seattle Foundation.

How does Dollars for Change work?

Multiple GIVEBIG donors will be chosen every hour over a 12-hour period, starting at 8 a.m. PDT on Wednesday, May 9. 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 26 - May 8, 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.
