Brand Toolkit and Logos

The GiveBIG logo is updated for 2024! It has been redesigned to be flexible to fit your needs and uses. The new logo is offered in three brand colors, but you are free to recolor the logo to better fit with your brand. Just download EPS or PDF formats to modify.

The GiveBIG 2024 Style Guide is coming soon with information on how to properly use the logos.

Toolkit for Fundraisers

Encourage your supporters to create a personal fundraising page that champions your organization! It's a great way to spread the word about your mission to people who are not already on your radar.

Anyone can make a fundraising page at any time, 365 days a year. Learn more about peer fundraising.

Social Media Templates

We've made it easy for you to promote your organization during GiveBIG! Just simply click the template you want to use, create a free Canva account (if you don't have one already), and easily plug-and-place your own photos or logo into it. It's easy as 1-2-3!

Submit Your Story

Social media that uses our overall theme "get that giving feeling" and links to your profile page will be more effective at encouraing donations if you tell a story that illustrates the impact your organization is having.  We are happy to help you get that story out to new audiences by including your high quality image and short impact statement in the overall campaign social media portion of the GiveBIG marketing campaign.  

Help us help you by filling out this short form for the chance to be featured on the Washington Gives social media channels or with our media partners.

When you post on social media during early giving in April or on the giving days, your post will have more impact if you use the hashtags #GiveBIG, #WAGives, and #ThatGivingFeeling.

How to Add a Goal to Your Profile Page

Organizations that add a goal during GiveBIG tend to raise more money than those that don't. After all, who would want to support a nonprofit that doesn't seem to be trying to achieve anything? Read our guidance on how to add a goal and progress bar to your organizational profile page.
