Seattle Met’s annual gathering of nonprofit organizations is back, though—like so many meaningful events this year—it’s going virtual. Since 2013, GeneroCity has offered a chance for community-minded locals to connect with worthy organizations that could use their support, especially after this wrenching year.
This year’s GeneroCity will kick off with a panel discussion on Tuesday, December 8 at noon regarding the various ways regular Seattleites can help, from donations big or small to acts of service. Representatives from Sound Mental Health and the Latino Community Fund will share ideas specific to the 2020 landscape, and Seattle Met's favorite hostess extraordinaire Poison Waters will moderate, ensuring all these philanthropic deets remain at least a little bit saucy.
Oh, and did we mention this whole situation is totally free? Not only that—the first 200 attendees who register get a free year of Seattle Met (or you can give it as a gift if you already subscribe). If you’re looking for ways to give back, especially amidst a pandemic, GeneroCity lets you engage with 10 local nonprofits via super fancy virtual booths. The booths will be up and running for most of December; for each visit, you get entered once again in our drawings for various cool prizes from local restaurants and retailers, even a few staycations. (No fair just showing up at the booth; you need to download a pamphlet, ask questions, etc.)
The GeneroCity Facebook event listing has details on how you can sign up and get involved.
