Today is the day to donate to your favorite nonprofit: it’s The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG day, where donations made will be “stretched,” depending on how much they receive. For example, if an organization receives 1 percent of the donations through the GiveBIG site, they’ll receive 1 percent of the “stretch pool” dollars. The stretch pool is $500,000.
Several Ballard nonprofits are on the list for donations, including Groundswell NW, the Nordic Heritage Museum, and the Ballard Food Bank.

Donations must be made through The Seattle Foundation’s website in order to be eligible for the “stretch” dollars.
