The Foundation funds a variety of human service and education programs in the Greater Puget Sound counties of Washington State. Grants are awarded for emergency and critical human services to support those in need, including housing, food, counseling, case management, life training, and other services. Grants are given for job training for the underemployed, including language skills enhancement, development of employable skills, and programs that help people become economically self-sufficient. Pre-school to 12th grade educational opportunities such as tutoring, mentoring, and other programs that enhance academic skills and excellence are of interest as are substance abuse prevention programs and treatment services; assistance programs for those suffering from the effects of domestic violence; and prevention education to stop the cycle of violence. The Foundation also awards grants to organizations providing services for those with disabilities including training and employment opportunities, education, respite care, and access to life-enhancing activities. The Foundation looks for organizations that both engage in strategic planning to meet well-mapped organizational goals and those that show positive results through their programs. A one- to two page letter of inquiry is requested.
