Thank you for your interest in applying for funding from the Grantmaking Program. The Seattle Foundation recognizes the critical role nonprofit organizations play in supporting a healthy community. We value the important work that you are doing and recognize that our grants are important for your continued success.
The Seattle Foundation is making modifications to our 2013 Grantmaking Program.
The Seattle Foundation has been engaged in a strategic planning process, which includes re-examining our current grantmaking and community leadership efforts, and seeking ways to increase our impact in the communities we serve. We are looking at our grantmaking and community leadership efforts and exploring how to build strong collaboration with Foundation donors to increase our collective impact in King County. In early 2013, we will conduct focus groups with key stakeholders to help guide development of a new grantmaking program in 2014.
In 2013, our grantmaking program will look similar, but modifications will be made in each element. We will fund in all seven elements in 2013. We strongly encourage nonprofits to check the Foundation's website for up-to-date information on the element grant programs processes and priorities. Following is the timeline for the 2013 grant cycles:
|March 1, 2013
||Arts & Culture
|April 1, 2013
|June 1, 2013
||Health & Wellness
