Bainbridge Ometepe Sister Islands

Building Friendships since 1986

GiveBIG

In past years, this online giving event has occurred over a 24-hour period of one calendar day; however, this year donors may contribute to their favorite charity through the GiveBIG online platform anytime between April 18 and midnight of May 3.

Sister Islands has participated in GiveBIG annually since 2012, with last year’s contributions totaling over $26,000 — making it one of our most valuable and successful fund-raising events.  One reason for this is that GiveBIG has a group of corporate sponsors (including the Seattle Sounders, KING-5, Microsoft, and Boeing) who collectively donate over $1 million that is used to partially match (i.e., ‘stretch’) individual donations to participating non-profits.  In 2015, for example, BOSIA received over $1,000 in such stretch funds.

Please consider making a contribution to BOSIA — either a general contribution or a directed donation (e.g., scholarship funds) — through the GiveBIG platform between now and May 3.  More information on GiveBIG can be found at the first link below. The second link is for making donations to BOSIA.
