When you give to Town Hall, you’re supporting a place where Seattle comes together.
100,000 people walk through our doors each year. With more than 400 programs spanning the arts, sciences, and civics, Town Hall cultivates an engaged and empathetic community.
We produce half of these events, so when you give to Town Hall, you help keep our programming exceptional and our tickets radically affordable for everyone. The other half of our calendar represents the work of 90+ other nonprofits and cultural producers who call Town Hall home. Your donation helps us keep our rental rates well below market value, so that everyone can afford to take the stage.
Matching gifts are an easy way to double, maybe even triple, your donation through your employer.
If your or your spouse’s company provides matching, send in the employer’s matching gift confirmation to Town Hall so we can credit you for enabling this matching gift.
Volunteer Hour Matching
Are you one of Town Hall’s active volunteers? If you work for a company that provides matching donations for volunteer hours, we encourage you to also enable these matching donations. All volunteer hour matching donations are invested back into the Volunteer Program!
Making a gift to Town Hall beyond your own lifetime can leave a lasting impact. When you make a legacy gift, you can designate all or a portion or your personal estate or specific property through a bequest in your will or living trust, or as a named beneficiary of your retirement or life insurance plans.
One of the simplest ways to support Town Hall is through your will or living trust. A bequest can provide critical funding for the future of this community cultural center in service to the community.
You can name Town Hall as the direct beneficiary of a stated amount of money or a stated percentage of your estate. You can also designate Town Hall to receive all or a portion of the remainder of your estate once all specific bequest have been satisfied. You may even designate Town Hall as a contingent beneficiary in the event that family members or other beneficiaries do not survive you.
You can also name Town Hall as a beneficiary of an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), 401(k) Plan, 403(b) Plan, or other qualified retirement plan. This type of gift can help reduce the taxes you pay on retirement savings. Simply contact your plan administrator and request a beneficiary form.
A life insurance policy may include Town Hall as a beneficiary, whereby proceeds from the policy will be paid to Town Hall upon the death of the insured. Or, you can name Town Hall as both owner and beneficiary of the insurance policy. This type of irrevocable gift would entitle you to a tax deduction in the year you make your gift. If your policy is not fully funded, you may make tax deductible contributions to Town Hall to cover the future premium payments. for more information about this type of legacy gift, please consult your tax adviser.

Donors are discovering the ease and added benefits of giving gifts of appreciated securities. Often giving a gift of stock to Town Hall will create tax savings for the donor.
