Seattle Parks Foundation 

Seward Park Torii by Jocelyn RC

Seattle Parks Foundation supports community-led projects through fiscal sponsorship services. They partner with the community to champion thriving and equitable parks and public spaces.

Seattle Parks Foundation believes that preserving public spaces is a shared responsibility and is best guided by community organizations, volunteers, and donors who are most acutely attuned to the needs of their neighborhoods.

As a fiscal sponsor, they serve as a nonprofit umbrella that enables groups to raise money to support their work. Seattle Parks Foundation provides an array of administrative, financial, fundraising, communications, and advocacy services so their fiscal partners can focus on the real work of benefiting people powered parks and public spaces. Since offering fiscal sponsorship in 2011, Seattle Parks Foundation has supported over 260 community-led projects.
