OUR HISTORY

30 Years of Trusted Service

Begun in 1989 as a response to a community “visioning” session called Olympia 2010, the Foundation was initially created to build permanent funding sources to achieve this vision. Whether adjusting to changes in community needs, or looking beyond those needs to foster a deeper knowledge of philanthropy itself, for thirty years the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound has made a lasting impact. See our anniversary book "The Practice of Giving: 30 Years of Community Giving."
