GiveBig campaign underway 2021!

The pandemic stopped many cultural movie festivals throughout the US including the Seattle Polish Film Festival one of our cities most cultural and social events of the year. We realize the pandemic was difficult for many members of our community so we don’t ask for much – if you can spare $25, it would be plenty. However, if your financial situation allows, please support our local Polish community causes such as the Seattle Polish Film Festival and Seattle-Gdynia Sister City Association through SPF and GiveBIG as much as you can. Your generosity helps all of us!

We hope you can donate so we can bring Polish films back to Seattle this year!

SGSCA President, Z. Konofalski, helped facilitate a meeting between the two in July of 2018, and now the contract between the city of Gdynia and Microsoft is signed. Construction of the first Polish Microsoft Flagship School is under way at Gdynia’s 17th High School, making it one of an elite 18 in the world!
