Free Throws for the Future
Free Throws for the Future returns for its second season. For every free throw made by the Storm, Alaska will donate 2,000 airline miles to The Residency, a non-profit created by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to help young hip-hop artists from low-income families acquire tangible artistic and professional skills. In addition, the Storm will gift $5,000 to The Residency at the end of the season. Fans can also get involved by donating their unused miles via Alaska’s LIFT Miles program which will assist youth community groups with business travel, accommodation of special organization requests and achievement of the organization’s mission.

Community Assist is a brand-new program that will tally Storm assists over the course of the season. For every 50 assists, the Storm and BECU will make a $1,000 contribution to Young Women Empowered (Y-WE), an organization that develops leadership, environmental, tech and wellness training to diverse female youth in Seattle. This partnership will also spotlight one inspiring young woman at each home game who will serve as the Honorary Captain.
