Founded in 2000 as a private, family foundation, the Foundation seeks to support the work of a range of community social service agencies. Grantmaking is targeted toward social services and education. Under social services, the Foundation is specifically interested in organizations that provide services in two areas: promoting economic self-sufficiency through education and training of youth or families with children and serving the elderly by providing services to help senior citizens live independently. Grants for education are made in two areas: teacher training in technology and curriculum development and support for arts programs. Private and public K-12 schools are eligible for grants. The Foundation awards grants to organizations located in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho, and Montana. A single page letter of inquiry is requested. The Foundation will send a grant application if the request is within its guidelines. The Foundation has two grant cycles, spring and fall. Grants for education will only be awarded during the spring cycle. Completed applications must be postmarked by April 15 to be considered for funding on May 31 and postmarked October 15 to be considered for funding on November 30. Additional information is available on the Web site.
