GivingTuesday: Annual Fundraising Campaign 2021


The Alliance Française de Seattle is joining the global generosity movement from November 9 to December 9, 2021.


#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 for a second time with a 2021 campaign placed under the values of community, resilience, and integrity.  Since 2020, the world has been facing unprecedented adversity.  Community has helped people cope with an incredibly difficult year, and together we proved our resilience throughout these challenges.  AFSeattle 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.
