Bellevue nonprofits are set to benefit during The Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG event, which will augment donations made to nonprofits through the foundation's website.
That percentage depends on the amount of donations each nonprofit attracts on Wednesday, according to The Seattle Foundation.
About 1,300 nonprofit organizations are participating in the event, according to The Seattle Foundation's website.
It's not easy to find just the Bellevue nonprofits (so, we're not going to list all of them), but participating groups include The Sophia Way, Bellevue Botanical Society, World Impact Network, Bellevue College Foundation, Bellevue LifeSpring and the Bellevue Arts Museum, and a number of youth programs.

According to The Seattle Foundation, each donation made through The Seattle Foundation's website to the any of the 1,300 profiled nonprofit organizations between midnight and midnight (Pacific Time) on May 2, 2012 will receive a pro-rated portion of the matching funds pool (the "stretch pool"). So, if a nonprofit organization receives 3 percent of the total donations during GiveBIG, then it will receive 3 percent of the stretch pool.
Sponsors include Microsoft, the Bezos Family Foundation and others listed on the GiveBIG website.
Donors can win too
Throughout GiveBIG, donors will be chosen at random to have an additional $1,000 given to the charity that received their donation, according to The Seattle Foundation. The selected donor will also be eligible to win a Starbucks gift card worth $100.
