There is still time to Give BIG to support SSC and ERW! 

Today is the Seattle Foundation's annual Give BIG. From 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. today (Pacific time), your donations to Safe Schools Coalition and our fiscal sponsor Equal Rights Washington Education Fund will receive matching funds from the Seattle Foundation!


Give BIG to SSC 

Safe Schools Coalition's (SSC) mission is to help schools become safe places where every family can belong, where every educator can teach, and where every child can learn, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. SSC works to reduce bullying and violence in schools through access to educational resources, intervention and advocacy and advisory services. While SSC has an incredible team of volunteers in place, our current need is to build a stronger infrastructure to support their efforts. An investment in SSC will help build our intervention team, expand our outreach and training, and allow us to grow and help more students feel safe across our State.  


Give BIG to ERW 

Equal Rights Washington Education Fund's (ERW) mission is to end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity by facilitating and coordinating the efforts of the LGBTQ and allied community that are directed to research, education and community mobilization. ERW prides itself on being an equality organization that supports all who need a voice. ERW's work to educate and advocate for fairness and justice is a key to our success. ERW's roots in and commitment to the LGBTQ community will always be the cornerstone of our identity, and our current priorities include work for: safe schools, transgender healthcare, comprehensive immigration reform, homelessness and the needs of aging LGBTQ seniors.  


YOU MAY WIN A GOLDEN TICKET! Throughout Give BIG, donors will be chosen at random from all donations made. The winner will have an additional $1,000 given in their name to the same charity that received their donation. The winner will also receive a $100 gift card, courtesy of Starbucks!
