GiveBIG 2017.

Stretch your WCOG Support through GiveBIG on May 10

Friends and supporters of the Washington Coalition for Open Government are encouraged to give smart by participating in the Seattle Foundation’s annual GiveBIG campaign May 10.

It’s the seventh year of the one-day, online charitable giving event featuring numerous local nonprofits – including the Washington Coalition for Open Government. Donations are accepted during just a 24-hour period.

A tax-deductible contribution to WCOG through the Seattle Foundation site can also result in matching funds, making a gift stretch even further. WCOG has benefitted from a boost in donations during GiveBIG events in past years, and welcomes contributions again. The organization is listed on the Seattle Foundation GiveBIG site. Donations may be made through credit or debit cards.

The Seattle Foundation site will even let you schedule your GiveBIG donation in advance, letting it take effect on GiveBIG day. You can schedule a donation any time between April 27 and the event on May 10.

Please encourage friends and colleagues to also support WCOG’s nonpartisan fight for transparent government and open, public participation. WCOG also provides outreach, public and legal education, and training to government staff to ensure business is conducted in the open and public records are properly disclosed when requested.
