We at Safe School Coalition have a simple vision. 


We see a world where every child - in every school - is safe.  Not only physically safe, but safe from harassment, intimidation and bullying because they are seen as unacceptably 'different'.   A world where every school celebrates diversity, doesn't just tolerate it.   A world where the lives of LGBTQ students are not markedly different from that of their non-queer peers.

You are a part of Safe Schools Coalition because you share that vision.  With your help, we have been able to provide web resources to tens of thousands in 50 states and 170 countries, training to thousands of educators, students and parents and crisis intervention for those most vulnerable.

We got where we are today because of you.  And we need your help to continue toward that vision.

You can do that by taking part in Give Big today, May 15.  
All gifts made before midnight tonight (Pacific Daylight Time) will be matched with a prorated portion of the Seattle Foundation stretch pool. This means your gift to Safe Schools will go even further to help queer youth.


You could be our Golden Ticket 

Throughout the day donors will be chosen at random to win an additional $1,000 and a round-trip airline ticket for the nonprofit that received their donation.  Winners will also receive a $100 gift card courtesy of Starbucks!

Think you can't 'Give BIG'?  No matter what your budget is, you can.  Every donation, regardless of size, qualifies for these drawings.  So your gift of $20, $10 or even $5 gives us a greater chance of an extra $1000.   Please make your gift now and please give what you can.  

To participate in GiveBIG:  

 on the Seattle Foundation website any time before midnight.
* Click "donate now" and make an online credit card donation.
* Forward this email, promote us on Facebook and Twitter, text your family and friends, and let them know about this special opportunity to make their dollars go even further.
* Sit back and envision the world you just helped create.

Thank you for giving BIG to take a BIG step toward our shared vision!



Thank you, 

Your Friends at Safe Schools Coalition



PS We know you will be asked to support many worthwhile causes today. Remember that any size gift could be golden for Safe Schools Coalition and the youth that we serve.
