Enumclaw agencies aided by ‘Give BIG’ effort

For a full 24 hours on May 6, a trio of local agencies will be participating in The Seattle Foundation’s “Give BIG” fundraiser.

Taking part are the Enumclaw Schools Foundation, Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation and Plateau Outreach Ministries. Donations to these local nonprofits received on May 6 via The Seattle Foundation’s website, will be matched. The more money contributed in support of families and children in Enumclaw, Black Diamond and the surrounding communities, the more additional matching funds will be received from GiveBIG sponsors.

The Seattle Foundation’s one-day, online charitable giving event, now in its fourth year, raised more than $11 million for local nonprofit organizations last year. It is designed to inspire individuals to give generously and help make the region a healthier and more vital place to live.

Ten donors will be chosen at random to win a Starbucks gift card worth $100 and have an additional $1,000 given to the charity that received their donation.

To make an online donation anytime during the 24-hour time frame on May 6, go to: In the search box in the upper right hand corner, search for the Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation, Enumclaw Schools Foundation or Plateau Outreach Ministries.

Be sure to check the “Search Nonprofit Organizations” option.

From there, viewers can learn more about the organization or go directly to the “Donate Now” button to make a credit card donation.

Additionally, each organization’s website, which includes a quick link to their donation page on The Seattle Foundation’s website:
