About the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound

The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound is seeking an investment management firm to provide professional investment management services. The investment management firm will implement an investment strategy that aligns with the Foundation's mission and values while maximizing returns to support the Foundation's charitable giving activities. The RFP process is something the Community Foundation does periodically as a part of its due diligence and is, therefore, not presumptive of a problem. 

We approach our work with a long-term time horizon. Our values of community engagement; diversity, equity, & inclusion; impact; and integrity are at the core of how we go about our work and what make our vision possible. Read more about us on our website at and our 2022 Annual Report.
