3 Edmonds Nonprofit Organizations to Benefit From Wednesday's GiveBIG

This is the second event organized by the Seattle Foundation, leveraging the power of social media to benefit nonprofits.

For 24 hours this Wednesday, you can make a donation to three Edmonds organizations and a portion of your donation will be matched by the Seattle Foundation.

This is the second year that the Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG online campaign has aimed to help Snohomish and King county nonprofit organizations raise funds and gain publicity.

The idea's a simple one: make a donation to an organization that you support through the Seattle Foundation's Web site.

The three Edmonds organizations are the Edmonds Center for the Arts, Holy Rosary Parish and the Edmonds Public Schools Foundation.

You can click on the links above to make a donation.

A share of your contribution is then matched with a "stretch pool" of funds provided by the Foundation, local companies and individuals. According to The Seattle Times, if an organization earns 3 percent of total donated funds, it would receive 3 percent of the matching money in the stretch pool.

GiveBIG this year takes place from 12:01 a.m. until midnight. Credit card donations made during this time will be counted as GiveBIG donations and used to calculate distribution of the stretch pool.

GiveBIG is presented by The Seattle Foundation and Lead Sponsors Bezos Family Foundation, JPMorgan Chase, Microsoft, Seattle International Foundation and Seattle Sounders FC.
