Foundation Raises More Than $63,000 During GiveBIG

Thank you for giving BIG to the Arboretum!

Thank you for giving BIG to the Arboretum!

Our sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to the Arboretum Foundation during the Seattle Foundation’s fifth annual GiveBIG event on Tuesday, May 5. A total of 177 donors gave $60,539 to help sustain the Arboretum and its children’s education programs.

This total includes $17,500 in matching funds. A special thanks to Pat and Marcus Meier, who gave us $15,000 in matching funds, and to an anonymous donor who contributed an additional $2,500 matching grant!

We have yet to find out about our share of the GiveBIG “stretch pool” of matching funds. We will update you as soon as possible.

Finally, a BIG thank you to the Seattle Foundation and its many generous event partners for hosting this wonderful day of charitable giving in our area!

Stretch pool update: In late June, the Seattle Foundation informed us that our portion of this year’s GiveBIG stretch pool is $3,158. This brings our total this year to $63,697!
