Due to the continuing unknowns of the CoVid-19 pandemic and the logistics of sponsoring an international event the 2021 Pacific Northwest Scottish Highland Games and Clan Gathering has again been cancelled. This year we are specifically soliciting donations to help defray the operating costs which do not disappear when the main event is cancelled. These expenses include but are not limited to internet, phone, etc. and our biggest expense multiple storerooms where the “Games” are stored. Your help with navigating and surviving these unprecedented times will be appreciated.
We ask you to consider donating to The Seattle Scottish Highland Games Association to support this worthy cause through GIVEBIG Seattle 2021 May 4 and 5 with early giving happening NOW! Sláinte!

Dear Friend of the SSHGA,
We are thrilled to introduce you to our biggest Scottish event of the year— GIVE BIG FOR SCOTS 2020,on May 5 and 6!
Over the past ten years, GIVEBIG Seattle has raised more than $100 million for local nonprofit organizations. The 501 Commons annual giving event is the one day each year when donations made to participating non-profits such as the SSHGA can make a huge difference in helping us carry on and continue bringing Scotland to the Pacific Northwest for over 70 years through the skirl o’ the Pipes and Drums, the beauty of Highland Dancing, the brawn of Scottish athletics, and the sharing of clan history! Inspiring new generations to discover their stories, your gift ensures the continuation of these traditions.
And this year more than ever your donation would be so beneficial since, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have cancelled the 2020 Scottish Games. Even though the bulk of our expenses with the Games is no longer an issue, the majority of our yearly income is no more as well. We must still fund our operating costs that remain. Multiple storeroom rent, insurance, phone, etc. still loom in coming months. We ask that you consider donating to the SSHGA to help us forge through this difficult time! Thank you!
GIVEBIG for Scots Begins April 15! GIVEBIG 2020 will take place on May 5 and 6, but you don’t need to wait that long to take action. On April 15, you can begin pledging your gift to the Seattle Scottish Highland Games Association, and your credit card won’t be billed until May 5.
Make your pledge early, and help us set
the pace for the best Scottish GIVEBIG year ever!
