GivingTuesday: Annual Fundraising Campaign 2020

The Alliance Française de Seattle is joining the global generosity movement from November 10 to December 10, 2020.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. The Alliance Française de Seattle is joining the movement with a 2020 campaign placed under the values of community, resilience, and integrity. In 2020, the world faced unprecedented adversity. Community has helped people cope with an incredibly difficult year, and together we proved our resilience throughout these challenges. The Alliance Française de Seattle is grateful for its wonderful members, students, supporters, and staff, and pledges to continue its ongoing mission to serve all of you with openness, expertise, and integrity.

Giving Tuesday takes place on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.

Be a part of our fundraising campaign by donating between November 10 and December 10.

We will hold our main fundraising event online on December 1: RSVP here!

How to Give in 2020

Make a direct donation online and choose the program(s) you wish to support in 2021!

Sign up for a French class, become a member, or buy a book! If you are not able to make a contribution at this time, join one of our free community events or simply tell a friend about us.
On, select Alliance Française de Seattle as your charity, and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchases  (at no cost to you).
Double your impact by getting your employer to match your donation to us! And yes, memberships are tax-deductible donations too.

Our Fundraising Goals

Our goal this year is to raise $15,000. Can you help us make it happen? Every donation counts!

Thank you to all of our pledge donors and to our supporters who took up the challenge during Week 1.
We reached almost 50% of our fundraising goal.

The next challenge consists in wishing Happy 33rd Birthday to AFSeattle by raising $3,300 before November 24.
 That’s 100 donations of $33, or 50 people who dare to double that amount, or even 33 donors who could jump in with $100. Cap ou pas cap?
Thank you for being in this journey with us!  

RAISED SO FAR: $ 10,581 GOAL: $15,000


Our scholarship program focuses on continuing education for WA residents. 
With this amount, we could offer 8 scholarships in 2021 (that is two full scholarships per term).


As 2021 will start with more online programs, these funds will allow us to continue our free community programs (Ciné-salon, Morning Coffee in French, Happy Hour in French, Musical Saturdays...) by covering salaries and technology costs.


The Alliance Française de Seattle will continue to cover the expenses of remote work for its employees (fast speed internet, technology tools, teaching resources) in addition to its regular operational costs (rent, office expenses...).
