501 Commons Recognized as 2014 Nonprofit of the Year

In front of a sold-out crowd of business and nonprofit leaders, 501 Commons was honored as Nonprofit of the Year by Seattle Business magazine at the inaugural Community Impact Awards held on October 22 at MOHAI. The Community Impact Awards recognize local companies and organizations "whose dedication and commitment to strengthening our community have had the greatest impact on the region."

We're moving to Pacific Tower

In mid-December, 501 Commons will move to Pacific Tower and become part of a vibrant, thriving collaboration between the State of Washington, Seattle Central College, and dozens of nonprofits. A conference center with rates for nonprofits will provide a new option for rental meeting space.
