Nonprofits are the backbone of our communities.


Expand your reach

Seattle Foundation helps nonprofits carry out their important work by awarding grants, forging community partnerships and educating community philanthropists and partners about the organizations that are most aligned with their charitable interests.

Current Grant Opportunities

Grant opportunities

Seattle Foundation offers a wide variety of grants to support local nonprofits. Our priority is those organizations making meaningful, measurable change within the key areas of our Healthy Community Framework—from arts and culture to health and wellness. With decades of experience and extensive research, we’ve learned what works, what doesn’t, and what investments need to be made to ensure that our communities thrive. Review our opportunities and learn how we can help your organization make progress toward its mission.
