Dollar-stretching news for local non-profit

Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services of the San Juan Islands has been selected to be one of the benefiting non-profit agencies in the Seattle Foundation’s 3rd annual GiveBig campaign.

For one 24 hour period in May every dollar donated to DVSAS through the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBig website will be “stretched” with a percentage matching gift from the Foundation’s individual and corporate sponsors.

On May 15, when you give your tax-deductible donation online anytime between midnight to midnight, your gift goes directly to the DVSAS account. That donation amount will add to the total that will be matched at the end of the campaign.

It is easy to participate, just log in to: and enter DVSAS in the search bar on the top right of the page.  Once directed to the DVSAS page, just click the “Donate Now” button.
