GiveBIG is on May 4 and 5 this year - and we hope that you'll be able to support our work with a gift at this critical time.
Snake River salmon and steelhead populations are in deep trouble today - as are the many species, economies and cultures that depend upon the gifts they bring to the Northwest and nation.
The good news is that we have a unique political window of opportunity right now to move a comprehensive regional solution forward in Congress in 2021. With your support, SOS will continue its work around the clock to mobilize the public support and political leadership needed to refine and advance the transformational proposal from Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID) to restore the lower Snake River and invest in salmon recovery, clean energy and Northwest fishing and farming communities.
For GiveBIG this year, we have a $10,000 matching challenge. So every dollar we receive before midnight on Wednesday, May 5 will be matched 1:1. We've set an overall goal to raise $15K total (in addition to the $10K match).
Please give what you can to help us take full advantage of this match opportunity and support our work at this critical time. (Based on early giving, we're met 1/3 of the match as of May 3rd!)
You can learn more about Rep. Simpson's groundbreaking proposal and some of our recent work to advance it in Congress by checking out the stories highlighted on our homepage. And if you have any questions about our program work or giving, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some ways you can help make GiveBIG a big win this year for the Snake River and its salmon, Southern Resident orcas - and people across the Northwest and nation.

Take good care,
Joseph Bogaard, executive director
