The Seattle Central Foundation
Mission: The Seattle Central Foundation raises funds and creates endowments for scholarships, tutoring, emergency assistance, faculty development and to support the student programs of Seattle Central College.
They have raised funds to support their students, faculty and programs for over 30 years. Last year, they gave more than $500,000 to 231 students and expect to distribute an additional $60,000 throughout the 2016-17 school year.
They are the home of the Seattle Promise, a bold initiative to provide a full scholarship to every low-income Seattle student with a 3.0 GPA. Each year, the Foundation hosts the annual gala event Believe.
They are the official gift-receiving agency for Seattle Central College.
