Believe 2013: Thank you to our donors!

We couldn’t have done it without you! from Seattle Central Foundation on Vimeo.

I’ve never been as grateful or as inspired as I was Thursday evening when our community came together at Believe, our annual dinner, to raise $237,069 to support the students, faculty and programs at Seattle Central Community College. Your generosity overwhelms me.

Your work on Thursday evening ensures that we will be able to start the Seattle Promise with $100,000 in scholarships, which will be enough to fully fund tuition for 225 students next year! Just this Sunday, The Seattle Times Editorial Board called out the Seattle Promise as “a wise investment.”

We’ll keep you informed as we move forward with our goal to fully fund every student who has financial need, attends full time and maintains a 3.0 GPA. In the meantime, I hope you’ll watch this video and feel proud that you’ve been a very special part of the launch of this groundbreaking initiative.
