Property Taxes Lakewood Seward Park Community Club

The Lakewood Seward Park Community Clubhouse is owned by the community and it has been in continuous operation since 1914. The LSPNA has always been a community effort – supported by the neighborhood through membership dues, clubhouse rentals and attendance at our fundraising events.    

Like many non-profits, your neighborhood association has been devastated financially by the Covid-19 pandemic.  On any given year, clubhouse rentals account for 80% of our revenue, however the last paid event at the community club was on March 15th.  Since that date, we have had to cancel all events and refund deposits paid.  We do not expect to open the clubhouse for rentals again until King County enters Phase 3 of Washington’s Safe Start Plan, which is not anticipated to happen before the end of the year.

As a response to this abrupt lack of operating funds, the Association Board cut all possible expenses to meet our basic needs (insurance, utilities, landscaping, and monthly cleaning). We have been able to use our reserve funds for this purpose, but those reserves are almost exhausted, and we will not be able to fund our basic operating costs past the end of 2020.

Most significantly, we had to make the decision to not pay our property taxes. We recognize that this will result in possible fines, but we had to prioritize our remaining funds to maintain minimal operations.

In order to overcome this severe operating shortfall here are several ways you can help:

1. Renew your membership for 2021 and think about upgrading your Family Membership ($30) to a Lake Washington Membership ($75) or a Mt Rainier Membership ($300) Renew your membership for 2021. Payment can be made online (http://www.lspcc.org/membership) or by mail. Our address is 4916 S. Angeline St. Seattle, WA 98118.

2. Consider making an additional donation either by PayPal or by check.

3. Please donate to this fundraiser to help us with the property taxes.  Our property taxes are $6,653.57.  

All donations are 100% tax deductible - The LSPNA is a 501(c)3 charitable organization.

We know that the past seven months have seriously stressed our community as well as our neighborhood association, but we know we can count on your tax deductible support at this time of need.

Gratefully,
