Welcome to the final meetup in the GiveBIG Eastside meetup series!

We’ll share who we are, information about our organizations, and will stand ready to support one another in our respective journeys. GiveBIG is an online fundraising campaign that culminates on May 3-4, 2022.

At this meetup, you will learn about:

  • The experiences of local nonprofits Hopelink  and Homeward Pet with GiveBIG
  • Key areas to focus on to maximize the GiveBIG opportunity
  • We’ll also have time for participants to solicit feedback regarding their own campaigns
