Seattle Foundation builds partnerships and uses innovative tools to drive positive change in our community.


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.

From collaborating and learning with others, we have incubated new solutions, ideas and organizations that are driving positive change in our community.
