Foundation Raises More Than $63,000 During GiveBIG
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!
