Celebrate GiveBIG with us![Extraordinary update: Despite huge technical difficulties, we couldn’t have asked for such amazing donors this year. In GeekGirlCon’s first year of teaming up with Seattle Foundation for its GiveBIG program, we raised over $12,000 with 115 donors! Read more about it in this blog post!]
Happy GiveBIG, part two!
If we can make it to 100 donors our Board of Directors will donate an additional $500. Will you accept the challenge? Every donation counts, and helps GeekGirlCon #GiveBACK more to you!
On Tuesday, GiveBIG’s website had some technical issues with donations. So the Seattle Foundation says it is extending GiveBIG through midnight tomorrow, Wednesday, May 4.
A quick recap of GiveBIG:
- GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event with the goal to invest $20 million in community nonprofits.
- In addition to the money we raise today, we get an additional percentage of funds from the Seattle Foundation.
- With the extra funds, you can help GeekGirlCon (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization), incelebrating every geek and promoting women in science, tech, gaming, comics, and all other geekdoms at a variety of events throughout the year and at our annual Con.
- You can donate here until midnight.
Our goal is 50 donations. Be one of our fabulous 50 donors and #GiveBIG!
We celebrated at Wayward Coffeehouse on Tuesday to track live results.
We will not be at Wayward on Wednesday, but the party continues online! Mention us on Twitter at @GeekGirlCon using the hashtag #GiveBig. You can see some of our tweets throughout the day, in the box below.
GeekGirlCon is 100% volunteer-run. With this additional funding, we can add even more diverse guests and options to our programming, promoting the role of women in geek culture.
We hope you join us in this adventure! Questions? Tweet us @GeekGirlCon or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
