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.
