About this funder:



The Whitehorse Foundation was established in 1990 as a supporting organization of Seattle Foundation. The mission of The Whitehorse Foundation is to fund organizations working to improve the quality of life for residents of Snohomish County, Washington. The Foundation focuses on programs that address prevention of problems and community challenges rather than later interventions.

In particular, it funds comprehensive services that respond to the full range of child, youth and family needs. The Foundation seeks funding requests for programs and projects that:

  • Strengthen families’ capacity to support, nurture and guide their children
  • Promote responsive parenting to improve children’s emotional, economic and social well-being
  • Help families acquire the knowledge and skills to be self-sufficient
  • Involve families and residents in program design, development and management
  • Are responsive to cultural, gender, ability and racial differences

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Grants are made to nonprofit organizations for project support or ongoing operating support. 


  • Preference is also given to funding requests for programs and projects that include other sources of funding and have strong community support.
  • The Foundation is interested in programs in the early stages of development, which convey an achievable funding plan (demonstrating strong community commitment) or a compelling impact.
