“A day without laughter is a wasted day ” – Charlie Chaplin

When you donate to Seattle Moisture Festival

  • You encourage shared laughter and joy in our community by supporting the largest and longest-running comedy/varieté festival in the world.
  • You keep ticket prices affordable and allow us to offer deeply discounted and complimentary tickets, so the arts are financially accessible to all.
  • You bring over 200 variety artists from all over the world to Seattle each spring to explore the contemporary creativity of this incredible, unique, art form.


Only half of our annual expenses are covered by ticket sales.  We rely on the generosity of individual donors, business sponsors, government agencies, foundations, and our incredible volunteer family to be able to produce four weeks (over forty performances) of live comedy and varieté every spring.

Please give generously and help us share our Moisture Festival magic with our community.

Matching Gifts

Many companies match charitable contributions made by their employees. Check with your employer for details. Seattle Moisture Festival will automatically send a tax acknowledgement document whenever you make a donation, which you can then use to submit your matching gift request. Check your junk mail folder if you did not receive your email acknowledgment.

Shop and Support

Amazon Smile, Paypal, and Fred Meyer all have programs where you can register Moisture Festival as your preferred charity. A small portion of every purchase you make supports the organization of your choice. Click each company name below for more information.

Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a named charitable giving account you can set up under a public charity, most often a sponsoring financial or community institution such as Schwab Charitable, Fidelity Charitable or Seattle Foundation, among others. To set up a DAF, you make an irrevocable gift of cash or other assets to the financial or community institution, receive a tax deduction, and as a “donor-advisor” may make non-binding grant recommendations to benefit the charities you care about, like Seattle Moisture Festival (Tax ID #20-3366934). Check with your financial planner or search “Donor Advised Funds” in your internet browser for more information on how to set up your own donor advised fund.
