Proceeds from The Seattle Seahawks Game Day Poster Series exceeded all expectations.

On January 2, the Seahawks gave $53,000 in proceeds from the sales of eight game day posters that they commissioned local artists to create this season. The funds will be used to purchase art supplies for visual art programs and classes at Seattle schools

Each individual school has different ways to fund their annual visual arts materials needs e.g. school budget, PTA, Donor’s Choose. The Seahawks Gameday Poster Series proceeds will go to schools that have the highest needs in our district. The schools will be determined using the SPS equity index and identifying schools we know have struggled with the on-going expenses needed for a quality visual arts program.
