Let’s build something together
Seattle is a socially conscious city, and that commitment is at the heart of everything we do. When the pandemic struck, we immediately mobilized support for those most impacted. Initiatives included working with affordable housing partners to address two pressing challenges—combating food insecurity among hard-hit local residents, and supporting small businesses. The result was a program that delivered food prepared by local restaurants to those in need. We also funded groups that provide childcare, giving flexibility to essential workers. For the future, we’re focused on improving access to great jobs. This includes helping students of color overcome the barriers they often face in completing their studies. Above all, we want to use our resources to give everyone a voice, helping ensure that all community leaders have a place at the table to share their insights.
