Request A Grant

Grant proposals are initially reviewed prior to each monthly board meeting. Organizations may be contacted to provide more information, or in some cases to give a brief presentation of the grant proposal to the board of directors.  Funding decisions are normally announced within 14 days following the meeting.

To request funding for a specific project or program, use the application below that corresponds to the amount of your funding request.  Submitted materials cannot be returned, so please do not include original works, notes, or materials.

If you have any questions, you may contact the Executive Director Wendy Kettlewell at 360-675-1133 or Board President Alex Pfeiffer at 206-295-3603.
