Chong Wa Benevolent Association 西雅圖中華會館

Established in 1912, the original mission of the Chong Wa Benevolent Association was 1) to provide a unified voice for Chinese Americans in Washington state, 2) to mediate disputes between the various Chinese organizations and 3) to keep alive traditional opera forms and maintain the language and culture among the younger generations.


Today, Chong Wa represents community interests to city, county and state governments to foster improvements in Seattle’s Chinatown and to foster Chinese language and cultural programs. The association is housed in a historic 1929 building located in the heart of Seattle’s Chinatown. The building serves as a meeting place on matters of import to the community, as well as a home base for the Seattle Chinese Community Girl’s Drill Team, the Chinatown Dragon Team and a Chinese language program–the state’s oldest. Program offerings include adult, youth and children’s Mandarin classes, Cantonese for Adults, English Learner and Citizenship classes, as well as cultural activities, such as Cantonese or Beijing opera rehearsals and performances.
