Seattle Times Educational Insert
On Sunday, April 29, 2012, the Seattle Times published an educational insert that will reach over 800,000 readers. A webpage with more information for the insert was created by Densho. Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like us to mail you a copy of the insert. The educational insert was made possible through funding from the Tateuchi Foundation, the National Park Service, and the Seattle Times Newspapers in Education program.

Register for Teacher Training Workshops
Densho is presenting teacher training workshops in Seattle and Boise in June. These workshops will use the educational insert and other Densho materials to examine how to use primary sources in the classroom. The workshops will be led by Executive Director Tom Ikeda and Education Consultant Janet Hayakawa.
Funding for these workshops is provided in part by the 4Culture Heritage Cultural Education Program and the Minidoka National Historic Site.

Give Big Today and Multiply your Donation by 7
The Seattle Foundation is doing a one-day, online event called GiveBIG. Donations to Densho through the Seattle Foundation TODAY, May 2, 2012, will be matched with a "stretch pool" of funds. Challenge grants from the Tateuchi Foundation and the National Park Service will then increase this combined contribution. For example, if you donate $100 and the Seattle Foundation matches with $15 (based on last year's stretch pool), the Tateuchi Foundation will match the $115, and the NPS will double match the entire amount with $460. So the initial $100 donation gets multiplied into a $690 contribution towards Densho's education effort.
