This is the heart of Seattle Foundation’s vision for a just community.
The science emerges when we use knowledge and data to catalyze funding, convene leaders and communicate to transform this vision into the genuine reality experienced by all those living in Greater Seattle.
We work at the intersection of the public and private sectors to ignite powerful investments and effective partnerships for social change. Understanding that social problems are products of networks of cause and effect at a policy and structural level, we focus on advancing systems change as the most effective way to achieve equity and opportunity.
Guiding our work is our strategic, Healthy Community framework, comprising eight areas of human rights and community life:
Arts & Culture, Basic Needs, Education, Economy, Environment, Global Giving, Health and Wellness and Vibrant Communities.
Within each element, Seattle Foundation’s team has identiﬁed targeted strategies where philanthropic investment can have measurable impact.
