About Doors Open

The King County Council has an opportunity to create transformative access to science, heritage, and the arts for its residents. With a focus on geographic equity, this investment would reach underserved communities, create new programs for youth and seniors, and expand partnerships with public schools to bring important programming to students.

To achieve this, we are requesting the King County Council to vote in favor of the Doors Open bill to enact a 0.1% sales tax, totaling a penny for every $10 spent, or $40 a year for an average family. This would raise more than $90 million each year and would be distributed through a grant pool administered by 4Culture , a trusted, well-organized funding agency with 45 years of experience.
