THANK YOU, White Center Community!

With your support, we have met our original fundraising goal of $5000. We will meet on June 7th to discuss how to distribute the funds to our interested vandalized businesses. We are still accepting donations at the link below, and the need is still there, as vandalism continues to be an issue in the WC community:



Take a stroll in White Center’s retail cores and experience food, products, and services from all across the globe. Over the years White Center has built a reputation as a welcoming hub for immigrants and entrepreneurs of every background, and the CDA believes in elevating and supporting this unique neighborhood asset.

The CDA organizes around issues important to small businesses and entrepreneurs; and connects small business owners to nonprofit organizations that offer in-depth technical assistance and small business loans.  

We prioritize our BPIOC and legacy businesses, as they are often marginalized and do not receive the resources their white counterparts do.
