Charitable Donation Requests

Donation Requests

Seattle Sounders FC is committed to supporting non-profit organizations that make a positive impact in our community with a focus on using soccer as a vehicle to empower and inspire, remove barriers on and off the field and strengthen communities.  On behalf of Seattle Sounders FC, thank you for your support and continued service to better our community.


Ticket Requests

Major League Soccer places limits on a team’s use of complimentary tickets; therefore, we are not able to offer tickets as a charitable donation.  If you wish to organize a ticket fundraiser for your organization, please contact a Sounders FC Group Tickets Sales Rep and learn more about group ticket fundraisers here.

Individual Autographed Items and Fan Mail

Please do not send personal items to the front office as staff members are unable to intervene on behalf of fans seeking autographs for personal or charitable purposes.  Items will not be returned.  Sounders FC is not responsible for any lost, misplaced, or damaged items.

In-Kind Donation Requests

Verified 501(c)(3) organizations may apply for donations to support charitable fundraising initiatives.  Donations are in the form of in-kind memorabilia.  Due to the large volume of donation requests we receive annually, the following guidelines have been established.  Please be aware that we attempt to fulfill as many requests as possible but cannot guarantee that every request that meets these guidelines will be fulfilled.
