Individual Giving

Supporters enable us to offer a wide variety of educational programs, undertake grassroots advocacy efforts, and engage in preservation projects.

The Supporters’ Circle

All donors become members of our Supporters’ Circle. Your donation works to save meaningful places that foster lively communities.

Supporters bring Historic Seattle’s three-pronged mission to life:

For the mutual pride and benefit of all citizens and to foster a more livable environment, Historic Seattle protects Seattle’s architectural heritage through education programs, advocacy, and the preservation of buildings and cultural landscapes.

There are two ways to give today!
