Join us for a the first in a series of informal, interactive meetups for East King County and Washington state nonprofit organizations, focused on the GiveBIG campaign. 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 experience of Issaquah-based nonprofit Eastside Baby Corner 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
