One Thing You Can Do Now

By PSARA’s Long-Term Planning Committee

Coming up very soon on Tuesday, May 5, is one BIG day when you can do something simple and concrete to help move our work forward. If you believe in the work of Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the PSARA Education Fund, our nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c )(3) organization, through the 24-hour online giving program called “GiveBIG” sponsored by The Seattle Foundation.

If you already use the internet and use your credit card to do online shopping or make donations on websites, this will be easy for you to do. (If not, don’t worry—it is easy!)

One big reason to make an online credit card donation during this 24-hour period is that The Seattle Foundation, through the generosity of other donors, will provide a partial match of funding. Basically, this is “extra money” that we otherwise wouldn’t get. So every dollar you give will bring us additional support! Every donation of every size will make a difference. If you have been meaning to make a contribution above and beyond your annual membership, this is a good time to do it!

What to do: From 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on May 5, go to The Seattle Foundation website:

  1. Click on GiveBIG and look for “find participating organizations now”– click on the colored “Search Nonprofits” button.
  2. Under “Search our database of nonprofit organizations”– enter PSARA Education Fund.
  3. Click on the “magnifying glass.”
  4. Click on “donate now.”
  5. Fill out the requested information on the online donation form, and click “submit.”

Thank you for supporting the work to make this a better world for all of us and our future generations.
