Base 2 Space

Seattle’s Most Iconic stair climb in support of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
For just the fourth time in the Space Needle’s 56-year history, the public will have the chance to climb the landmark’s 832 “open-air” stairs. It’s all for Base 2 Space: Seattle’s Most Iconic Climb and the Space Needle Foundation’s leading fundraising event benefiting Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Space Needle Foundation. The Space Needle Foundation is proud to support Fred Hutch, a world-renowned organization dedicated to eliminating cancer and other related diseases. As a component of the Seattle Foundation, the Space Needle Foundation is committed to elevating our collective future by supporting organizations who are at the forefront of transforming lives and make a positive difference in the Puget Sound region.

The fourth annual Base 2 Space stair climb will be on Sunday, Sept. 30. Visit www.base2spaceseattle.com for more information.

Round-up at the Needle

Make your pennies go further! 
Guests who visit the Space Needle’s retail store, SpaceBase, have the opportunity to round-up their purchases to the nearest dollar and donate the difference to the foundation’s featured charity partner. Thanks to our generous guests and passionate Team Members, the Space Needle Foundation donated $43,000 to Seattle Children’s Hospital. Round-up at the Needle supported the hospital’s Uncompensated Care Program, which aims to provide patients access to medical care—regardless of their family’s insurance or ability to pay.
