The City Year Seattle Alumni Community is at it again! Last year we were challenged to break our fundraising records by collectively raising $5,000, and thanks to all of you we pulled through beautifully. This year, we’ve raised the stakes to grow our alumni donor community!

The City Year Seattle Alumni Board is thrilled to announce a challenge grant of $10,000 made possible by an anonymous alumni donor. Between now and June 30, 2017, alumni have the opportunity to turn $10,000 into $20,000!

All of these funds go directly toward City Year’s mission to support student success in our Seattle schools. $10,000 marks a special amount, funding 1,700 hours of direct AmeriCorps Member service! By meeting the challenge this year, we can double our impact to providing 3,400 hours of tutoring and mentoring for students.

Join the alumni donor community, and instantly double your impact! It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Become a member of the Shoulders of Giants alumni giving club. For just $10 a month, you will provide sustainable support AND receive monthly benefits!
  2. Make an online donation and show your love for educational equity!
  3. Join the party! Ripples of Hope is Thursday, April 27 ON SAFECO FIELD!!

We look forward to celebrating this year’s achievement as our alumni community reaches new heights.
