We, at Denise Louie Education Center (DLEC) are committed to providing educational services for low-income children and families amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Since 1978, we have provided early learning and family support services for Seattle children so that the opportunity gap is closed before they begin kindergarten. All of our programs are designed to prepare kids for kindergarten at no cost to many essential workforce families. As these services are crucial to expanding a healthy community, your support is appreciated. We know that many businesses have been negatively impacted by the current pandemic and hope to be able to support local businesses during these unprecedented circumstances as well. We don’t have the answers but hope that we can help through our marketing efforts. If you are able to support our virtual auction this October, we are more than happy to provide marketing opportunities in the following ways:

·       Recognition in online event program circulating

to over 300+ attendees 


·       Recognition and website in our e-newsletter

sent out to 2750+ subscribers for 2 months 


·       Website and social media recognition


·       Recognition in agency annual report


·       Recognition in slideshow of virtual auction


Last year’s virtual auction set record high revenue of over $180,000. We hope to do the same for this year’s auction to be held on Saturday, October 9th, 2021.  We would love your continued encouragement as we work together towards our vision of educating and empowering children and families. As a community, we can raise resources to bridge the funding gap from inadequate federal support for the critical services we offer, and we hope you will continue to invest in us. If you are interested in donating an item to our auction, please complete and return the enclosed form and mail (or email) it to us by Friday, August 27th. 


There are many other ways you can support us if you are unable to donate at this time. You can advocate for us by sharing our mission with a family member or friend. Even a quick mention on your social media would mean the world to us. In times like this, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are. Thank you for being a part of our community. Without you, none of it is possible. If you have any questions, please contact Nikki Huang at (425) 533-0805 or via email at nhuang@deniselouie.org.
