UPDATED: Today is GiveBIG – help EOI meet our goal!

givebig 2013

UPDATE 12:00 PM: 30 donations so far totaling $11,000 – thank you! We’re in awe of all the support so far, but we still have a ways to go to reach our goal of 150 donations. Any amount makes a difference – please tell your friends (on Facebook, Twitter and email) that today is the day to GiveBIG to EOI. Thank you!

Today in Seattle is GiveBIG – our community’s biggest day of giving. Organized through the Seattle Foundation, GiveBIG takes place ALL DAY today and we at the Economic Opportunity Institute are hoping to get 150 donations and raise at least $15,000 to take full advantage of a match from a generous EOI Board member. You can learn more about the event on the EOI GiveBIG web page.

As you know, EOI is an active think tank for rejuvenating the middle class. We promote economic security and educational opportunity – from Social Security to paid sick days to family leave insurance to early learning, health coverage, and affordable higher education. And we can chalk up many actual victories on this road to social justice and progress.

The first $15,000 donated to EOI will be matched, thanks to the generous support of an EOI Board Member in honor of our 15th anniversary. Also, your gift will be “stretched” by a share of the Seattle Foundation’s $800,000+ “stretch pool.” So basically, the more GiveBIG donations we receive, the bigger the stretch.

You can find the link to donate via credit card here and through the icon below. This is a huge opportunity for EOI – please help us make our match and meet our goal!
