giving big

I am about to tell you something that I think will blow your mind…The other day in our office I came across a report that showed how much money has been donated to Ben Towne Foundation through monthly contributions. So get this…

Since our launch celebration in September 2010, we have received $82,624.20 in combined monthly contributions! Can you believe that?

When I saw this number I was stunned. We are obviously grateful for all our supporters, but today we just wanted to give a shout out to those donors who have committed to a monthly gift to BTF. Perhaps you wonder if your contribution of $10 or $20 or $50 really does anything, but let me tell you that it does matter – especially when you see a number like the one above! Thank you for your dedication to curing childhood cancer; it is amazing how these gifts add up over time!


Speaking of giving big…several of you have asked if we are participating in the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG campaign.  The answer is yes and here are the details…

The Seattle Foundation GiveBIG

Wednesday, May 15th

GiveBIG is a one day, online charitable giving event hosted by The Seattle Foundation and Ben Towne Foundation is pleased to be represented. Each credit card donation made on the Ben Towne Foundation profile page will be made even bigger thanks to a stretch pool of matching funds.

Also, throughout the day, donors will be chosen at random to have an additional $1,000 given in their name to the same nonprofit that received their donation. Those winners will also receive a $100 gift card courtesy of Starbucks. 

Thanks to the Seattle Foundation for including BTF in your annual event!
