Every spring, The Seattle Foundation hosts an online day of giving event – GiveBIG – galvanizing nonprofit supporters across the Puget Sound. Collectively, the Greater Seattle community has raised $75 million for local nonprofits.
This year’s GiveBIG is Wednesday, May 10, and here at DNDA we want to take the opportunity to give you – our community – a big THANK YOU.
Many of you attended our Destination Delridge event in February, so undoubtedly you were as inspired as we were by spoken-word artist Carlynn Newhouse, when she said:
We can’t thank Carlynn enough for her beautiful words, and we know many members of our community are showing love in incredible ways, working towards things personally powerful and collectively meaningful. Here at DNDA, we continue to work towards our vision for a vibrant and thriving Delridge.
Here’s just a couple of things we’re doing:
- Building an outdoor teaching garden and permaculture site that will serve as a neighborhood hub where school instruction, gardening, conservation, resiliency, social justice and art programs come together to foster trust between cultures and people
- Building partnerships with community activists and organizations to address critical issues such as racial equity and youth reformative justice
- Hosting twice-weekly volunteer and classroom work parties to restore and sustain forests and wetlands in the Duwamish Greenbelt
- Connecting people, art, and nature through our EcoArts programming and Arts in Nature Festival
If the vision of a vibrant and thriving Delridge community is meaningful to you, please share your story and ideas with us. If you’d like to make a donation – any amount makes a BIG difference – you can do so starting today at: givebigseattle.org/dnda.
And this year, your donation of any amount will make twice the impact, thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor who has pledged to match every gift to DNDA up to $2,500!
Thank you for showing your love for this community and for working to hold us all up.
