Getting Started 

You can support what’s important to you

A personalized fund at The Seattle Foundation gives you flexibility with your philanthropy. You can be as active as you wish and support the issues and organizations that matter most to you—locally, nationally or internationally.

  • Gifts from your fund will then be made in your name or the name you choose for your fund.
  • You receive immediate tax benefits, but can give over time.
  • Your assets grow through investment, allowing you to give more.
  • You can endow your fund as a legacy in perpetuity.

An Alternative to a Private Foundation

Many types of funds allow you to give to specific organizations, make gifts over time, recognize you and your family, and grow your charitable dollars through investment—but without the administrative burden and expense of a private foundation.


Our philanthropic services team will guide you through the giving process.
