Seattle Go Center Gets Matching Grant

Sunday September 25, 2011

All donations made to the Seattle Go Center in the month of September will be matched by another  donor, reported Manager Brian Allen at the Center’s 16th anniversary party.  “Our anonymous benefactor will match donations up to a total of $10,000”, he said.  Some donors may also trigger matching grants from their employers, since the Go Center is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit.  Center supporters can donate online using the website donation page: donate. Now that the downstairs of their building is rented out, the Go Center has been gradually increasing programming and outreach, often with volunteer help.  The Seattle Center is open 5 days a week; two days a week for classes, and three days a week for games and informal lessons.  It is also open on Sundays for tournaments about twice a month.  “This is a great time to support the Center and help us get back to teaching and promoting go full time”  noted Allen.  Photo: Dennis Wheeler plays out a famous game with M&M’s on a  cake for the Go Center Anniversary Party.  Photo/report by Brian Allen
