Get ready to jam out this June as some of Washington’s most famous figures come together for All In WA: a concert for COVID-19 relief by presenting sponsor Amazon.
All In WA is a coalition of philanthropic, business, and community leaders who are working together to address the hardships that Washington communities are currently facing. They will be harnessing their collective power to spread the message and match donations (Amazon will be matching all individual donations under $1 million to All In WA causes, up to a total of $25 million).
“All In WA is helping to fill the gaps in funding across the state to provide relief to those who are suffering and to lay the groundwork to restart our economy in a safe, supported, and sensible way,” Governor Jay Inslee said in an Amazon press release.

On Wednesday, June 10, the coalition will be putting on a virtual event “to bring attention to our state’s needs and resilience” while raising funds by donation to provide relief and support for Washington State families, community foundations, and workers in need.

Additional performers will be announced at a later date.
Donations will benefit the WA Food Fund, WA Student and Youth Homelessness Fund, Small Business Fund, Economic Recovery WA Safe Start Fund, Undocumented Workers and Families Fund, as well as various community funds.
