Support the ARTS in our schools in Okanogan County

ONE DAY ONLY through the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG PROGRAM today– Tuesday, May 6th


The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and  more vital place to live.

Each donation* made to the more than 1,500 nonprofit organizations profiled on The Seattle Foundation’s website between midnight and midnight (Pacific Daylight Time) on Tuesday, May 6, 2014, will receive a prorated portion of the matching funds (or “stretch”) pool. The amount of the “stretch” depends on the size of the stretch pool and how much is raised in total donations on GiveBIG day.

* We will “stretch” all donations up to $5,000 per donor, per organization. (CLICK HERE FOR FAQs)


Throughout GiveBIG, donors will be chosen at random from all donations made up to the time of the drawing. The winner will have an additional $1,000 given in their name to the same charity that received their donation. The winner will also receive a $100 gift card, courtesy of Starbucks!

Your support ensures that students and families in need have access to art experiences. Our school programs are offered free of charge and last year we gave away 425 free tickets to local social service agencies to guarantee equal access to our performance series. We continue hold a strong belief that ART should not be a privilege, but instead a core component of our community and our lives, no matter the income bracket.
