News from the North Cascades Institute
May 1, 2013
We’re thrilled to partner again this year with The Seattle Foundation for their annual GiveBIG event on May 15! Plan on rallying your friends and supporting your favorite charity (us!) as part of the Pacific Northwest’s biggest day of giving of the year. Every donation we receive on that day will be stretched by The Seattle Foundation – so it’s the perfect day to make a donation and multiply the impact of your gift!
Last year, supporters like you helped us to raise more than $20,000 to support environmental outdoor education. This year, we hope to raise even more, and we're off to a great start: an anonymous donor has donated $2500 to be matched dollar for dollar in addition to GiveBig' "stretch pool."
Your gift will change lives by helping more than 100 teenagers learn about leadership, science and stewardship through our Youth Leadership Adventures summer programs in the North Cascades. You're support will also enable more than 1,000 young people to attend Mountain School this coming fall. These kids simply would not have the opportunity to learn about the environment – and go home to teach others – without your support.
All donations to North Cascades Institute on GiveBIG day must be made with a credit/debit card through our profile on The Seattle Foundation's online Giving Center on May 15 – by donating to this Institute this way, your donation will be stretched even further by The Seattle Foundation.
