For over ninety years, the purpose of the China Club of Seattle has been to promote mutual friendship and understanding and foster an appreciation of the great contributions that the Chinese have made over the centuries.  The impetus for initiating the Club in 1916 also included improving business relations between Seattle and China.

Our mission is to increase the awareness, understanding and appreciation of developments in Chinese culture, history, philosophy, and current affairs.

We believe it is important to enhance the means for social, cultural, and commercial interchange between our respective cultures.
