Strengthening Nonprofits and Incubating Solutions

Seattle Foundation builds and invests in strategic partnerships to increase racial equity and opportunity, making our community healthier and stronger for all.

We harness public, private and nonprofit partners to leverage funding and resources that effectively address the complex challenges in our community. We take this collective approach as a convener because we believe we’re more powerful together.
