We Did It!

We are so inspired and honored by your show of support at our Annual Benefit, Truth, Trust & Democracy. The room was brimming with longtime friends and many newcomers to Seattle CityClub. The conversation was substantive, insightful and inspiring. And when we asked for your support, you gave in record-setting numbers!

We’re excited to announce that we raised $234,000 for Seattle CityClub programs like the WA State Debate Coalition, and we are still counting! If you were unable to attend or make your contribution during the event, it’s not too late! Thanks to the generosity of our match pool donors, gifts $500 and above will be TRIPLED and gifts of $250-$499 will be doubled if made online this week.

We extend huge, heartfelt gratitude to our individual contributors, sponsors, table hosts, board members and of course the major donors who provided matching funds.

Thank you for being with us and supporting Seattle CityClub’s vital work to educate people about current events and public policy, promote leader access and accountability, and foster respectful civic dialogue about pressing issues affecting our community.

Congratulations to Marilyn Watkins, Policy Director of the Economic Opportunity Institute, on receiving the Nancy Nordhoff Civic Leadership Award! Marilyn is recognized as a national leader for policy innovation and implementation for family leave, paid sick days, gender wage equity, and other interventions to enable a more secure and humane work-life balance, making her a true civic trailblazer.

Thank you again for your generosity and support.

We hope to see you at our debates or other events this fall!

Executive Director
