Today, we stand at a pivotal crossroads as we launch our end-of-year campaign: ‘Build Legacy: Shaping Our Future Together.’ This journey is not just about building; it’s about sustaining a vision where every member of our community can thrive.

Our work, going beyond conventional affordable housing development or educational programming, centers around the belief that we are not just providers; but cultivators of a community’s soul, guardians of its history, and architects of its future.

‘Build Legacy’ is more than a campaign; it’s a critical call to live the legacy–TODAY-that you want to leave. Over the coming weeks, we will take you on a journey through what it looks like to live a life dedicated to aligning mission in the here and now and the stories of those who both support and have been impacted by that mission and vision.



Imagine a Seattle where the heart of the Central District and Seattle’s Black communities beat stronger each day. This is the world ACLT is tirelessly crafting – a world where affordable housing is a cornerstone of community strength, not a fleeting privilege; where education and youth development are gateways to limitless potential; where the shadow of houselessness is dispelled by the light of hope and dignity.

Our impact stretches far beyond the bricks and mortar of housing. It’s about crafting a community fabric so resilient that it becomes a model for cities nationwide, even globally. Our approach is holistic, intertwining cultural preservation, economic empowerment, and educational excellence, making each dollar you invest in ACLT exponentially more impactful-becoming a significant and necessary thread in the tapestry of this legacy.

Yet, imagine with us for a moment if you will, that this tapestry were to remain incomplete-frazzled and tattered.  


Without your support, the consequences extend far beyond unfinished projects. It risks leaving the rich potential of our community unrealized and allowing our cultural heritage to quietly fade away. The absence of Africatown Community Land Trust’s (ACLT) efforts means more than just a shortage of affordable housing. It signifies the dimming of Seattle’s cultural and historical legacy, a hinderance in battling systemic inequalities, and a missed chance to establish development models that truly serve and reflect the aspirations of our communities.

Your support plays a pivotal role in addressing the disproportionate challenges our communities face, such as homelessness, gun violence, and drug crises. Through your donations, we can implement vital community development solutions like affordable housing and tech education pathways. These initiatives are crucial in enhancing safety, boosting economic mobility, and fostering a more equitable Seattle. With your help, these pressing issues can be significantly mitigated and plays a crucial role in preserving the vibrancy and identity of the community.

Give to make impact and help us reach our $250,000 goal to provide on the ground solutions to the challenges our communities face today.

Join us in this urgent mission to not just build but to transcend – to create a legacy that resonates through generations to come by making your tax-deductible contribution today.
