Starting Thursday, April 27 at noon, you can schedule donations for Give Big Day 2017! The donation button is now live on www.givebigseattle.org/SeaDocSociety, but scheduled donations will not be charged to your card until Give Big Day, which is May 10.
Why schedule your donation early? Because it helps ensure that you don’t forget to give on the big day! Our lives are busy, and giving early allows you to donate when it’s on your mind. Scheduled gifts will be processed very early on May 10, so your donations will also help SeaDoc get some great momentum to start to the day, which can encourage others to give as well.
For early giving, donors will be prompted to create a simple profile that includes their name, email and a password when they donate. Learn more about early giving in Give Big’s FAQs.
To address the growing challenges facing the Salish Sea ecosystem, we are in the final stretch of a $1.5M fundraising campaign, Salish Sea Forever, designed to double our science and double our impact. We are fortunate to have a $125,000 matching grant, meaning every dollar that you donate on Give Big (including the ones scheduled in advance!) will be counted as two. “Now more than ever”, please give BIG this year!
SeaDoc Society’s mission is to improve the health of the Salish Sea ecosystem that is home to more than 8 million people and extraordinarily diverse fish and wildlife populations. We are a core program of the Karen C. Drayer Wildlife Health Center at the University of California Davis, a center of excellence in the School of Veterinary Medicine recognized as the top veterinary school in the world for the past three years.
Based on Orcas Island in the Salish Sea, SeaDoc works on both sides of the US/Canadian border. All donations are used in the Salish Sea. We have prioritized and funded more than 100 scientific projects documented in more than 70 peer-reviewed publications on topics ranging from evaluating water quality and contaminants to forage fish and killer whale recovery.
