Seattle proved its philanthropic might during GiveBIG on May 3 and 4. As you may have heard, there were technical difficulties during the planned single-day of giving so it was extended an extra day. 

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!
