Fundraising Event Sponsorships

Be a sponsor for our spring Words Matter gala. As a Words Matter sponsor, you will enjoy visibility with both the more than 300 event attendees and SAL’s more than 24,000 patrons. A sponsorship provides you with the unique opportunity to connect with the Puget Sound community – one of the top literary and most well-read areas in the country, according to multiple national rankings – by showing your support for the literary arts and youth literacy.
