Grow Your Gift to AtWork! With GiveBIG on June 23

If you have ever considered giving a gift to AtWork!, now is your chance to make the biggest impact with your dollars.

On June 23, 2011, AtWork! will be participating in an exciting event through The Seattle Foundation that will multiply your gift to us.

GiveBIG is a community-wide giving challenge that will increase the size of your donation to us. This new, one-day, online charitable giving event will rally together our community on behalf of the amazing nonprofit organizations in King County, including AtWork!.

GiveBIG will grow your generosity in two ways:
  • Grow your gift! The Seattle Foundation and local businesses will match a share of every contribution made through The Seattle Foundation's online Giving Center between 7 a.m. and midnight on June 23. The more donations we receive during that time window, the bigger our share of the matching dollars will be.
  • Win a Golden Ticket! During the day, you could be chosen at random to have AtWork! receive an additional $1,000 from GiveBIG’s sponsors.
We encourage you to join our supporters in giving big on June 23. Your gift will help support AtWork!’s mission of helping people with disabilities become productive, contributing, and integrated members of their communities. YOU can help a person with disabilities get a job. For every dollar AtWork! spends on supporting people with disabilities in jobs, $1.69 is returned back to the community in taxes paid and entitlements and other supports that are no longer needed. With GiveBig, your return on investment is significant!

Mark your calendar! Donate to AtWork! between 7 a.m. and midnight on June 23 through our page in The Seattle Foundation’s Giving Center: http://www.seattlefoundation.org/npos/Pages/AtWork!.aspx

There are other ways you can help us make the most of GiveBIG! Here are a few things you can do in addition to making a generous gift:
  1. Mark your calendar today, so you don’t forget to make a gift to AtWork! on June 23!
  2. RSVP for GiveBIG on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TheSeattleFoundation. If you do this, The Seattle Foundation will send you an email to remind you of the event to make sure that your gift arrives during the match window of 7am to midnight.
  3. Rally your friends to support AtWork! on June 23! Email, Facebook, Twitter (#GiveBIG), phone calls and even in-person conversations are great ways to spread the word and help us take advantage of GiveBIG. Be sure to share the link to our profile on The Seattle Foundation’s website http://www.seattlefoundation.org/npos/Pages/AtWork!.aspx

Thank you in advance for giving big, and for encouraging your friends, family and colleagues to do the same. With your help AtWork! can continue to create mutually beneficial work relationships between people with disabilities and mainstream employers in the community.
