This Place & the People Who Live Here

We believe in the exponential power of local giving and investment. We were founded in 1989 to build a permanent source of local funding. The South Puget Sound is our home, and the people here matter to us. More than 30 years later, we’re still here growing charitable resources and investing them back into our communities to strengthen Thurston, Mason, and Lewis counties.

Together, our community responded to COVID-19, and we're still working together for a stronger & more resilient future.
