WTA expects to take home $48,000 for trails thanks to your generous donations during GiveBIG on May 2. Our grand total includes gifts from more than 300 hikers, a "stretch" match of $4,400 and a special $2,500 match from the Eleanor Trask Fund at The Seattle Foundation.

With 38,000 donations totaling $7.4 million for more than 1,200 local nonprofits, The Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG event turned into an amazing day of giving to make our region a better place to live, work and play.

According to the Foundation's preliminary results, WTA placed #6 in number of donations received and #21 in total amount received. This is an amazing testament to the value of the work we do every day to protect and maintain trails.

We've said it before, but it bears repeating: THANK YOU for giving big to WTA!

We'd especially like to thank the staff of The Seattle Foundation for their hard work on behalf of WTA and other participating nonprofits. We also hope you'll join us in thanking the GiveBIG sponsors who contributed to the $800,000 stretch matching pool, including: Microsoft, Boeing, the Bezos Family Foundation, JPMorgan Chase, the Seattle International Foundation and the Seattle Sounders.
