Planned Giving


For over 50 years Seattle Center has offered the Northwest a cherished civic center, event venue and as the home to arts, science, theater and icons like the International Fountain. You can help ensure that this vibrant and essential gathering place continues to be here for future generations. Charitable gift planning provides thoughtful, flexible ways to support the future of Seattle Center and the legacy of the Seattle Worlds Fair. Planning a legacy gift into your estate is a gift of future possibilities – and is possible for anyone who want to insure that the joy and magic of Seattle Center stays, theater and icons like the International Fountain. From our start as the 1962 World’s Fair to today’s thriving hub of Northwest activities we have served our communities through our commitment to delight and inspire the human spirit.

Planned Giving is a way to make a charitable gift now or after your lifetime while still enjoying financial benefits for yourself and your family.

Sometimes referred to as “stop-and-think” donations, Planned Gifts often require planning and help from professional advisers. Unlike a cash donation, Planned Gifts are most commonly assets in your estate rather than cash contributions and are fully realized upon your death.

A bequest is the most common planned gift but there are other options as well. Some of those options are a charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust or life insurance policies.

There are so many different ways to support your community through planned giving and is possible for anyone regardless of their means.

Consider giving a gift to Seattle Center that will live on through the years.
