How are you affiliated with the Southeast Seattle Education Coalition?

We are a group of individual PTAs and PTOs who partnered together in order to establish a collaborative fundraising model. In order to successfully pool and distribute our raised funds, we partnered with the Southeast Seattle Education Coalition that serves as our conduit for keeping and distributing our funds to the individual non-profit PTAs and school groups. We use the Southeast Seattle Education Coalition GiveLively platform and EIN number and they support our work with providing monthly balance sheets, digital shared storage for member schools, online design tools, and much more! This relationship also allows for matching gift donations and donor advised funds through their organization as part of our agreed upon fiscal relationship. All donations are tax deductible through Southeast Seattle Education Coalition. SESSFA pays 10% of all gifts received to SESEC.
