“The Kitsap Great Give” What is the Kitsap Great Give?

Simply put, the Kitsap Great Give will be the greatest day of charity that Kitsap County has ever experienced! The goal is to raise at least $500,000 in online donations for local nonprofits. Whether or not we reach that goal is up to you and the thousands of other residents of this County who we hope will participate on May 6. Please take part in the Great Give.

Why should I bother to donate online on May 6?

Finally, there are fun prizes throughout the day. For instance, between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. that day, one donor will be randomly chosen each hour. The winning donor each hour will have $250 added to their donation! Take part on May 6 and help “your” nonprofits win these prizes!

There are lots of reasons to take part on May 6. First, you’ll be part of something bigger than yourself, a group of thousands of people who donate that day to celebrate and support 200 nonprofit organizations working in every corner of the Greater Kitsap area. If we all take part, we can smash the goal of raising $500,000 that day!

So how exactly does it work?

Second, this is your chance to learn about all of the wonderful nonprofits that are working hard every day to make our communities better places to live, work, and play. At www.kitsapgreatgive. org you can view the profiles of 200 nonprofits that work in Kitsap County. Third, any donations you make that day will be magnified by sponsors

Nonprofit’s donations on May 6 (- 5% service fee)

of the event. For instance, if you donate $100 to a nonprofit through www. kitsapgreatgive.org that day, the nonprofit will actually receive $115, $120, or more dollars. You see, some very generous sponsors have donated over $100,000 to this event. That money will be given to all of the nonprofits taking part on May 6 – the more donations a nonprofit receives, the more of the $100,000 it will receive. So make sure you donate to your favorite nonprofits on May 6 and help them get part of that $100,000!


It’s very simple, really. For 24 hours, from 12:00 a.m. on May 6 until 11:59 on May 6, you can go to www.kitsapgreatgive. org, look through the 200 local nonprofits listed there, and donate as much or as little ($10 minimum) to as many nonprofits as you’d like in a single transaction using a credit card. That’s it. The website will keep a running total in real-time of the total amount raised so far; so you can check in throughout the day and see if we’re getting close to the $500,000 goal. And you can also see, in real-time, how much money each of “your” nonprofits has raised that day. Help nonprofits. Help our communities. Win prizes for your nonprofits. Feel good about yourself. Please be a part of the biggest day of charity in our County’s history!

The Kitsap Community Foundation By Kol Medina, Kitsap Community Foundation Executive Director The Kitsap Community Foundation, in partnership with our Presenting Partner, the United Way of Kitsap County, is pleased to produce the Kitsap Great Give. Our mission at the Foundation is to “improve our community’s quality of life by connecting people who care with causes that matter.” The Kitsap Great Give accomplishes that mission in an efficient and county-wide manner. I believe that you are a person who cares and that there are causes that matter to you. If I’m right, than the Kitsap Great Give is a tool that you will want to use; it will allow you to more efficiently and effectively support the causes that matter to you. On page 3 of this insert, you can read about exactly how the Great Give works.

We at the Foundation hope that the Great Give will raise $500,000 for local nonprofits on May 6. But we also love this event because, for one day, it will shine a bright light on the hard and important work of nonprofits. And we love this event because of its spirit – it’s a way for all of our local nonprofits to work together to raise the tide for all of them. At the Foundation, we believe deeply in the power of collaboration to improve our nonprofits and our community. Kitsap Community Foundation is YOUR community foundation. Our purpose is to improve our community by working to better the nonprofits in our community, working to increase philanthropy in our community, and providing leadership in our nonprofit sector. The Foundation is young, having made its first grants in 1999. Since that time, the Foundation has distributed over $1.7 million dollars to approximately 150 different greater Kitsap area nonprofits.

One of the most popular types of funds in the Foundation’s endowment is a “donor advised fund.” Put simply, Please donate to a donor-advised fund allows you to donate a sum of money (minimum Kitsap Community $10,000) today, or whenever you’d like Foundation on May 6 to including in your will, and to then work with the Foundation to make help the Foundation pay for donations out of your fund forever the costs of producing the to the nonprofits you recommend.

West Sound Youth for Christ seeks community transformation through holistic and relational outreach to kids and families. Each week, throughout Kitsap and North Mason counties, West Sound Youth for Christ engages with over 2,000 kids in schools, juvenile institutions, coffee shops, and local hangouts. Whether at the skate park, helping a foster child find a permanent home, or coaching a teen mom through the struggles of parenting, Youth for Christ staff and volunteers show the love of Christ in tangible ways. While our faith motivates us to action, our programs are open to young people of all backgrounds and beliefs. Our goal is that these young people become change agents in their community, school, neighborhood, and city. Youth for Christ empowers adults in volunteer service, equipping them to safely build relationships with unchurched young people.

The Importance of Charitable Giving in our Communities Mother Teresa once said “To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.” I like to think of this quote in the context of philanthropy (charitable giving). I think of the size of the flame in the lamp as a sign of the health of our communities; and I think of philanthropy as the oil in the lamp. Charitable giving, the dollars and time that we all give to nonprofits in our community, has a huge impact on the size of the flame because the nonprofits in our community provide so many of the services and qualities that make our communities healthy. The Kitsap Great Give is designed to put a lot of oil in our communities’ lamps. If we all take part in the event, we’ll raise over $500,000 for nonprofits in our community on May 6. It will be the largest day of charity

ever experienced in this County, the single greatest injection of oil ever made into the lamp! 200 different nonprofits are eligible to receive your donations at www.kitsapgreatgive. org on May 6. That’s 200 organizations that educate our children and adults, protect and improve our environment, take care of our elderly and disabled, provide fun and meaning through arts and culture, support our veterans, provide food to the hungry, give clothes to the poor, and help to heal those suffering from drug addictions and mental health issues. I encourage you to go to www. kitsapgreatgive.org on May 6 and, if nothing else, just look through all of the nonprofits listed there and see the

donated over $150 million to charity in 2008. That ranks Kitsap County as the 255th most giving county in the country (out of 3,115 counties).

As it stands already, a lot of oil is put into our nonprofit lamps in the greater Kitsap area. In 2012, a massive study was released showing the level of giving in each community around our country in 2008 (you can look it up online at “How America Gives” and search by your city). This study found that the good citizens of Kitsap County donated over $105 million dollars to charity in 2008.

Also of note is the total revenue of the nonprofits in our community. There are approximately 250 public charities based in Kitsap County. In 2012, they had a combined revenue of $650 million. That’s $650 million that these nonprofits spent to help us, our neighbors, and our families and to make our community a better place to live, work, and play.

And the study was only capturing about 60% of actual giving, which means it is likely that members of our community – you, me, and all of our neighbors in this County –
