Because of the tenacity, patience and sheer will of our amazing donor community, were able to exceed the generous matching fund of $20,000! In total, we raised just over $65,000 during the two-day giving event this year.
It takes a village to raise a child and the donations received during GiveBIG will go directly into ensuring that all students in Seattle are able to be a successful member of that village.
Specifically, funding raised from GiveBIG directly supports City Year Seattle's after school programming including:
Enrichment clubs such as hip hop dance, cooking, world cultures, sports, and music.
Extra academic skill building through hands-on, game-based learning in math and literacy.
Technology-based instruction including coding, computer science, and building math skills.
Thank you to all those who participated, donated and cheered City Year Seattle to new heights on GiveBIG this year!
