It’s happening right now, as you read this. Every gift made to Crosscut today will have a portion matched by the Seattle Foundation’s #GiveBIG sponsors!

We believe that an informed public is essential to solving the challenges of our time. And we’ve filled our writing team with civic champions to help us achieve that informed public.

Take Knute Berger for instance. Writer of our Mossback column, Knute explores how the Northwest culture forms our politics, and how politics forms our Northwest culture. From helping us build an earthquake resilient city, to a voice for authentically preserving history, Knute champions learning from yesterday to shape tomorrow.

Or radio producer and host Katy Sewall. Her interview with Interagency Academy Principal Kaaren Andrews on how six student deaths shook their schools in turn shook us all. She questioned why the loss of these victims went unnoticed by the community at large. Katy champions moving us beyond statistics into action.

Knute and Katy are just a sampling of the incredible civic champions we are honored to feature on
