On May 2, 2012, there’s an exciting event that will amplify the impact of your gift to Camp Solomon Schechter.

GiveBIG is a community-wide day of giving hosted by The Seattle Foundation that will increase the size of your donation. Last year during GiveBIG, $4.1 million was raised to support over 900 nonprofits in our community.


Please help Schechter be a part of this success in 2012!

GiveBIG will increase the impact of your gift in several ways:

  • Grow your gift! A share of every contribution made through The Seattle Foundation’s online Giving Center between midnight and midnight on May 2 will be matched by The Seattle Foundation and GiveBIG’s corporate sponsors, who have put $500,000 into the “stretch pool.”
  • Win a Golden Ticket! During the day, you could be chosen at random to have Camp receive an additional $1,000 from GiveBIG’s sponsors. This year, the selected donor will also be eligible to win a Starbucks gift card worth $100!

We encourage you to mark your calendar and join all of our supporters to GIVE BIG on May 2 through our page in The Seattle Foundation’s Giving Center: Camp Solomon Schechter.  Your gift will enable more youth in our community to experience the fun, excitement and informal Jewish education of camp.
Help us make the most of GiveBIG! In addition to making a generous gift, rally your friends to support Camp on May 2! Email, Facebook, Twitter (#GiveBIG), phone 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: Camp Solomon Schechter.

Thank you for your generosity.
