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. In fact more than half of our annual revenue comes from charitable donations. Please join us to power another year of inspiration, conversation, and community.
$10,000 inspires 200 students for a full year at one public school serving a low-income community through SAL’s Writers in the Schools (WITS) program.
$5,000 supports 10 local musicians and writers in creating original songs, art and essays inspired by visiting SAL authors to broaden the community conversation.
$2,500 brings the outstanding original creative writing of 130 local K-12 students to the greater community in a professionally designed and published anthology.
$1,000 employs a local, professional writer to teach and inspire K-12 students for one month through SAL’s WITS program.
$500 increases access to an original lecture by one of the most important writers and thinkers of our time through real-time open captioning.
$250 brings SAL’s WITS program to three K-12 students for an entire year.
$100 provides tickets for 10 students to be inspired by a nationally known author at a SAL event.
$50 funds one K-12 classroom of WITS students in celebrating their writing through classroom anthologies, poetry slams or original books.
Join us for SAL’s Back-to-School Luncheon and help inspire thousands of K-12 students to discover the power of their creative voices.
Together, we raised over $281,000 to inspire and engage readers and writers of all ages.
Thank You for Powering Another Year of Inspiration
An enormous thank to all who made a special year-end gift to SAL – and to everyone who contributed to SAL in 2016!
Seattle Arts & Lectures is thrilled to share our 2015/16 Annual Report. Heartfelt thanks to all our enthusiastic subscribers, generous supporters, and innovative partners that made this record-breaking year possible!
Join us on September 27 for SAL’s Back-to-School Luncheon and help inspire thousands of K-12 students to discover the power of their creative voices.
The event will raise essential funding for SAL’s Writers in the Schools (WITS) program, which matches talented professional writers with local public schools and Seattle Children’s Hospital for year-long writing residencies. Last year WITS writers helped more than 6,000 students at 27 public schools build self-confidence, community, and essential writing skills as they learned to tell their unique stories through creative writing.
