White Hat Club

White Hat Club

Members of the Washington State Fair Foundation’s White Hat Club are those generous donors who have committed $1,000 per year for a 5 year term in support of the Fair’s programs. And yep, you really do get a white cowboy hat to show the world you’re one of the good guys. 


Your membership can be paid in many ways:

  • A one-time $5,000 gift
  • An annual gift of $1,000 for a 5 year term
  • Quarterly gifts of $250 for a 5 year term
  • Monthly gifts of $83.34 for a 5 year term – that’s less than $20 a week!

For White Hat Club membership information, contact the Foundation office at 253-841-5105 or email hollyb@thefair.com
