More than 250 supporters gave more than $25,000 to Conservation Northwest during the third annual GiveBIG.
The online, one-day only event, sponsored by the Seattle Foundation, raised $11 million dollars for non-profit organizations in King County. In 24 hours on May 15, people donated 54,500 gifts to 1300 nonprofits including Conservation Northwest.
"These gifts ensure that some of our most iconic species – like wolves, grizzly bears, and wolverines – have a wild home," said Kim Adank, Conservation Northwest's development associate. "Your support means the world to us, and means a wilder world for the Northwest. Thank you!"
