GiveBIG and support Seattle Parks’ programs May 5

GB_LogoBe a champion! Join the Associated Recreation Council (ARC) and The Seattle Foundation in supporting our community on Tuesday, May 5.

GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations that make our region a healthier and more vital place to live.

By making a gift to ARC through The Seattle Foundation’s website on Tuesday, May 5, you will help deliver the high-quality programs and services that truly make a difference in the lives of Seattle residents. The Seattle Foundation will leverage your gift even further by providing ARC with additional matching funds.

ARC, in partnership with Seattle Parks and Recreation, serves Seattle by offering a variety of recreational and lifelong learning programs, classes and activities. ARC, incorporated in 1975 as an independent nonprofit organization, supports this work through the ARC Board of Director and a system of 37 advisory councils. Citizen volunteers on the board and advisory councils help to enhance the mission and vision of Seattle Parks by providing a connection to the community and advocating for the success of citywide recreation services.

Just click on the link below, go to “Donate Now” and GiveBIG Specify in the “Comments” field which of ARC’s programs you’d like your gift to support (for example, after-school care or RecTech).

Last year, ARC’s GiveBIG campaign raised $28,241 from 178 donors.
