Nonprofits Recognized for Promoting Civic Engagement

Seattle Foundation and KEXP announce first round of nonprofits awarded participation in KEXP's Community Partnership Program.


September 09, 2016

With a goal to create connections between KEXP listeners and deserving local organizations by supporting nonprofits, KEXP recently partnered with Seattle Foundation to relaunch its Community Partnership Program. The program’s initial focus was on organizations whose work promoted civic engagement, specifically voter turnout, registration, and assisting communities that are underrepresented in participating in the democratic process.

In August, a committee consisting of both KEXP and Seattle Foundation representatives selected four nonprofits, each with an operating budget of under $2 million, to elevate the work they are doing to create a vibrant democracy. While the US Presidential Election is fast approaching, the committee also looked for organizations that support increasing civic engagement on an ongoing basis through outreach, education and advocacy.

The first nonprofits recognized through this Seattle Foundation/KEXP partnership are:

Washington Bus

Latino Community Fund

Open Doors for Multicultural Families

Washington Low Income Housing Alliance

These organizations will be promoted on-air and online at KEXP.ORG for one month. There will also be a live music benefit show at a local venue, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the organizations.
