Over the years the KISW Rockaholics, the most generous listeners on Earth, have helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Pacific Northwest charities.  This year for Give Big Day May 8th we encourage you to give what you can to our local charity partners who are working hard to make a difference right here at home every single day.  

 

Mary's Place, the official charity partner of the KISW Rock Girls provides safe, inclusive shelter and services that support women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness. Across nine emergency family shelters in King County, we keep struggling families together, inside, and safe when they have no place else to go providing shelter, services, resources, community, and hope. 

 

Every time you buy a Mens Room Original Red, Mens Room Gold, Mens Room Black and Mens Room Original Sausage you're supporting our three local Fisher Houses.  The Fisher House provides our military members and their families a comfortable, nurturing and secure environment while they receive medical care.

 

Pearl Jam's Vitalogy Foundation supports the efforts of non-profit organizations doing commendable work in the fields of community health, the environment, arts & education and social change.  Each year $2.00 from every Pain in the Grass ticket has been donated to the Vitalogy Foundation and distributed to various Seattle non-profits including the Downtown Emergency Services CenterThe Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas and Real Change.  You've helped raise over $125,000 since 2015.

If you've been to a rock show around here you've likely met our friends from Motley Zoo Animal Rescue.  Motley Zoo is a rock and roll themed, volunteer- powered, foster- based, 501c3 nonprofit based in Redmond, WA.  Since 2009 Motley Zoo has placed more than 2,500 animals in loving homes.

There are over 1,500 local non-profits that could use your help.  Find one near you and schedule your Give Big Day donation now at GiveBig2019.org.
