GiveBIG 2021

We can’t wait! Our Associate Artist Group and AW leadership are hard at work planning our next season, as we look forward to our re-opening late Fall 2021. We know that you are just as hungry as we are to welcome back theater into your world, an entire season – in-person or streamed, whichever you prefer. You can help us now by donating thru GiveBIG to ensure that we are resourced fully for that day when our doors re-open and we bring you the stories we want to share with you November 2021 through August 2022. What a great day that will be. It’s just around the corner!

What is GiveBIG?

During the GiveBIG statewide fundraising campaign, individuals and organizations come together across Washington to invest in our community. When we give, we take a proactive step towards creating the society we want to live in.


Every spring, the excitement for GiveBIG builds through grassroots-based word-of-mouth, social media, an extensive multimedia promotional campaign, and local celebrities and sports teams firing up the community to show their generosity. This year’s GiveBIG campaign kicks off April 20, and culminates with 48-hour giving event on May 4-5!


In 2020, 91,618 donations were made to 1,635 nonprofits. These donations combined with donor-advised funds (DAF) and IRA contributions, matching donations from individuals and companies, and in-kind contributions from local media companies totaled $19.2 million!
GiveBIG was started by the Seattle Foundation in 2011 and transferred to 501 Commons in 2018. Since it is inception, GiveBIG has raised $144 million for nonprofits.
