“Seattle is a better, kinder, and more thoughtful place because of the work that you all do. Thank you.”
– SAL Patron

Individual Giving

SAL counts on supporters like you to help us bring our community together – people of all ages and backgrounds – to read and write, to listen deeply, and to bring forward the voices we all need to hear. Sixty percent of our annual revenue comes from charitable donations. Please join us to power another year of inspiration, conversation, and community.

Words Matter Reimagined

Thank you for helping SAL raise almost $300,000 at Words Matter Virtual Gala!

Your generous support is helping SAL bring powerful writers, poets and storytellers to Seattle stages and classrooms—and online to homes here and across the country—to inspire delight and deeper insight, to spark engaging conversations and civic engagement, and to build greater connection among us at this critical moment in time.

Please save the date for next year’s Words Matter on Friday, April 23, 2021, when we hope to gather together again at the Four Seasons.
