Welcome to GiveBIG Registration!
Just click the link below to register. Scroll down to read about the new registration fees and why they're necessary this year.
Tax-exempt organizations (approved by the IRS) with a headquarters or a service location in Washington State are invited to participate in GiveBIG2019.
- This includes global organizations headquartered in Washington State but providing services outside of the US.
- A "service location" means the organization is providing a direct benefit to Washington state residents or communities.
- Tax-Exempt organizations that are not 501 c3 charitable organizations can participate but must indicate on their profile that donations to the organization are not tax-deductible.
Nonprofit organizations that are approved by the State of Washington but do not have tax-exempt status from the IRS are not eligible. Individuals are not eligible.
To participate in GiveBIG 2019, complete registration by March 29, 2019 and pay the registration fees. You are required to provide the name and email of the financial contact who will receive the donation disbursement check. This contact must reply to an email verifying their email by May 1. If the email has not been verified by this date, your participation in GiveBIG may be revoked.
How do I register if my organization is fiscally sponsored?
When registering you will have the opportunity to select that you are fiscally sponsored. You will enter the Tax ID of your fiscal sponsor and their financial contact. Funds raised during GiveBIG will be distributed to your fiscal sponsor.
How were registration fees determined?
We determined registration fees through discussions with the Nonprofit Give Day Coalition and our GiveBig Nonprofit Advisory Council and with input from a survey in November that garnered nearly 500 responses. Most comments and responses favored a progressive sliding fee scale that is based on the net amount raised during GiveBig last year for returning organizations and a sliding scale based on contributed revenue for new organizations.
From the beginning, we wanted to be fair and transparent. GiveBIG has never had registration fees, so it was important that it not come as a surprise that fees are needed given the reduced level of philanthropic support. In future years, when we have a longer time for fundraising we hope to be able to reduce the fees. For 2019, thanks to the nonprofit community for setting GiveBIG 2019 on a path to success!
We are committed to GiveBig supporting organizations of all budget sizes. Please provide your 2019 Contributed Revenue Budget. This is the total amount of money you are attempting to raise for your current fiscal year (2018/2019 or 2019) minus any earned income, capital campaign funds, in-kind revenue, or interest or investment earnings your organization expects to earn.
The registration fee will be 2.9% of your donation total from GiveBIG 2018 up to a maximum of $5000. If your organization received less than $1,000 in donations, the fee is only $10.
The Registration fee is based on your 2018/19 or 2019 contributed revenue budget (excluded earned income, capital campaign contributions, and interest earnings). These fees are shown below and also range from $10 to $5,000.
The fee structure depends on whether your organization's participated in GiveBIG in 2018:
|$1 - $150,000||$10|
