2019 Annual Polish Community Fundraiser

Dear Members of the Greater Seattle Polish Community

Today we are writing to you because you are a member or supporter of our community, and we are inviting you to participate in the

Seattle Polish Foundation 2019 Annual Polish Community Fundraiser

Last year, our community celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Polish Home Association (PHA) in Seattle, an event that made us reflect on our history, heritage, perseverance, and accomplishments. Our community would not thrive for over a century without the continuous support, active participation, and generosity of its members. Let’s duplicate the spirit that the Polish community showed a hundred years ago. With the 2019 Fundraising initiative, we want to ensure that our generation’s legacy is appreciated the same way a hundred years from now. To donate, click here. We accept all popular credit cards, PayPal, cash and checks. If your employer offers a gift matching program, don’t forget to apply for a match.

We have great traditions, culture and history, and together we can preserve them for future generations. We want to share our heritage with members of the broader community through the Polish Cultural Center, Polish Festival Seattle, Seattle Polish Film Festival, and other events. Our main purpose is to support each other in times of need, to assist newcomers to settle, to help our kids discover their roots, and to provide for all of us this comforting feeling that we are part of something great, that’s worth preserving. This is what our community is all about.

Our community has changed significantly in last ten years as did Seattle. To adapt to these changes, we constantly think about new ways to make it more attractive. We have tons of ideas on how to make the Polish Cultural Center more interesting and engaging and for activities and events that all generations of Poles in Seattle area can enjoy and participate in. In order to make this transition to serve evolving future programs, we need your help to accomplish it!

That’s why we are inviting you to participate in the Seattle Polish Foundation 2019 Annual Polish Community Fundraiser. Ten years ago, our community raised a sizable amount of funding for the Polish Hall remodel. This was a huge success and a great proof of our strength and generosity. Based on this experience and success, Seattle Polish Foundation, with the support of all Polish organizations in Seattle, decided to make this year’s Fundraiser a community-wide event.

To learn more about SPF, please visit Seattle Polish Foundation website where you’ll find information about our projects, volunteering, the process of applying for corporate donation matching, and more. You can make a donation online https://www.seattlepolishfoundation.org/donations/.

Many local corporations offer donation matching. If you work for one of those companies, we encourage you to apply for a match. Donation matching can double our funding and accelerate our programs.
