GiveBIG logoHave you heard about GiveBIG?  

The Seattle Foundation sponsors this one-day, annual online charitable giving event to help nonprofit organizations who are doing good work in our community.

Here’s how you can support the West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network via GiveBIG!

  1. Visit the GiveBig website. Early giving is allowed this year, so you can do this today, as well as tomorrow.
  2. Find our fiscal sponsor, the Seattle Neighborhood Group here.
  3. In the comments area, designate your donation for the West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network. You will receive a receipt to make your donation tax-deductible.

***If your employer does a donation match, you can double your contribution! Some alumni groups do a “stretch fund” as well!

No matter how big, no matter how small, your gift allows us to make a difference.

You can ALWAYS give to West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network. At other times of the year, visit the website of our fiscal sponsor, Seattle Neighborhood Group, and find us on the drop-down menu under “Make a donation today!”

Thanks for your support!

GiveBIG on Tuesday, May 5th!

Did you know that this coming Tuesday, May 5th, marks the 5th annual GiveBIG campaign? The Seattle Foundation sponsors this one-day, online charitable giving event to raise awareness and make it easy to donate to nonprofit organizations who are doing good work in our community.

If you want to support us, you can donate to our group on Tuesday (or at any time) via the Seattle Neighborhood Group, which is one of the groups included in the GiveBIG campaign. [Updated 5/5/15:  Just learned that GiveBIG donations need to be made via this page today. Money donated via this campaign is then amplified beyond face value – so your donation will go further.]

Seattle Neighborhood Group is our fiscal sponsor, and your donations to the West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network (WSBWCN) via their organization are tax deductible! They provide fiscal sponsorship services for quite a few small grassroots community groups such as ours, who do not have 501c3 status yet.

To donate after the GiveBIG campaign is over, just visit the Seattle Neighborhood Group website (; there you’ll see a “Donate” form in the left-hand menu on their home page. Select “West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network” from the dropdown list of community groups; then click “Buy Now.”

Many thanks to those of you who sponsor or donate to our organization! Contributions help fund social events like the Block Watch Appreciation Party, as well as pay for printed outreach materials and other expenses.
