    Support our students by making a gift today! The Seattle Central Believe Gala allows us to sustain our Central Commitment program that supports students with financial need from start to finish. 

    Every year, Seattle Central rallies a community of advocates and partners together to celebrate the power of education in our city. The Believe Gala is a public celebration of the power of education to reinvigorate a promising future for all, and to support students on their life-changing journeys. While we will not gather in person, we plan to bring the celebration right to your living room!
