Washington state is home to a growing number of families who struggle to get by. To address challenges our region’s families face, we support many dedicated and innovative community organizations in the Pacific Northwest. We focus on nonprofit organizations and tribes that can best identify and serve the needs of low-income children and families. We help these organizations serve more people, build organizational strength, and improve their programs.
