$4,000 goal

Thank you to all the donors who participated in our GiveBig campaign! Thanks to some last minute donations, we are excited to announce that we doubled our goal and raised a total of $9,565. We are amazed by our community and its generosity!

The Alliance Française de Seattle is dedicating its Scholarship Fund to beloved board member and friend Thierry Rautureau, who passed away in October 2023 and who was a fervent advocate of French bilingual education.

We extend our warmest THANK YOU to all the donors who are helping us launch the Thierry Rautureau Scholarship Fund.        

Thank you for believing in our mission to advance French bilingual education in Washington state.

With gratitude,

The Alliance Française de Seattle


The Alliance Française de Seattle is one of the leading French language and cultural centers in the PNW, providing French-language classes for all ages and levels in person and online and a variety of cultural and arts events to represent and celebrate French-speaking cultures across the world with our local community. 

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit incorporated in the state of Washington, we collaborate with many local, regional, and international partners in the cultural, artistic, and educational fields. In a few numbers, we are:

  • 25 teachers 
  • 6 staff members 
  • 925 members 
  • The 4th Alliance Française in the US  in number of enrollments (out of 105 AFs!)  


We strive to make a big impact with quality French-language classes, highly qualified teachers, offerings for all types of learners. We actively support our community with affordable cultural events, networking for Francophiles and Francophones, and scholarship opportunities. 

If like us, you care for and want to support continued education, intercultural dialogue & inclusivity, and strengthening our community, please consider donating during GiveBIG 2024! Your support will directly impact our students and community with better access to foreign language education, additional scholarships for families in need of financial support, and by providing improved resources for our youth students.

On May 7, we will also be celebrating National Teacher Appreciation Day. Join us during GiveBIG with a donation that will directly benefit our amazing French teachers! 

Whether you are a student, a young professional, a generous benefactor, or an admirer of all things French or Francophone, your support is important and greatly appreciated. Each donation, no matter the amount, helps us continue to support our vibrant community of French learners and culture enthusiasts.
