Need a tax write-off? Donate to WSBWCN!

We’ve neglected to mention this recently: donations to the West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network (WSBWCN) are tax deductible!

You can donate to our group at any time via the Seattle Neighborhood Group (www.sngi.org). You’ll find a “Donate” application in the upper right-hand corner of their home page, then select “W. Seattle Block Watch Network” from the dropdown list of community groups. Seattle Neighborhood Group, our fiscal sponsor, will provide you with a receipt for tax purposes. As you can see on their website, they provide fiscal sponsorship services for many small grassroots community groups such as ours, who do not have 501c3 status yet.

Many thanks to those of you who sponsored or donated to us in 2012 and made our first BW Appreciation Party (last June 22nd) possible! We hope to have a similar fun event sometime in 2013.

Yay! Today is the BW Captains’ Appreciation Party!!!

If you haven’t yet registered for tonight’s party, there’s still time! Looks like we’ll have a good crowd, but there’s still room for you…see below for more details.

Remember to RSVP for the BW appreciation party!

It’s June… and the Block Watch Captains’ Appreciation Party is less than 3 weeks away!  Please RSVP to reserve your spot if you haven’t already! Seating is limited and we need to know how many of you will be there so we can plan.

We have had some great prizes donated by local businesses. There will be live music by Maia Santell & House Blend plus a great dinner and lots of fun.  The Mayor will be there and SW Precinct SPD; hope you can too!

Hosted by the West Seattle Blockwatch Captains’ Network  with partial funding from the Department of Neighborhoods. Co-sponsored by the West Seattle Blog.

We see this party as a wonderful opportunity for Block Watch Captains throughout the SW precinct to meet in person and network with each other!  [Updated on 6/6/12]

Donations needed!

As we mentioned previously, the upcoming Block Watch Captains’ Appreciation Party is being partially funded with a Small Sparks matching funds grant from the Department of Neighborhoods. Our group, the West Seattle Blockwatch Captains’ Network (WSBWCN) is responsible for matching the grant money with donations (money, food, materials, services and/or volunteer hours). Are you able to help with a donation?

If you can help, details about how to contribute and our wish-list of what is needed are in this  attached letter, WSBWCN_donation-information. The letter also explains the purpose of the party and the mission of our group in more detail. Any donations are tax deductible!

Thank you for considering our request. We are excited about organizing and hosting this event, as we feel it will benefit our community as well as individual Block Watch Captains. This party and recognition is a small thank-you gesture for the ongoing work that they do; as well, it is a wonderful opportunity for the Captains to meet all together in person and network with each other.

Register for the BW Captains’ Appreciation Party!
