The Education Fund
is now the
Seattle colleges foundation
In 2018, the Office of Advancement launched the Seattle Colleges Foundation, a new institutionally-related nonprofit that emerged from a process of consultation and collaboration among the campuses comprising Seattle Colleges, each of which previously supported a separate foundation. The North Seattle College Education Fund merged with the Seattle Colleges Foundation in December of 2018.
The move to a single, unified foundation follows a prevailing national model for multiple-college districts adopting an integrated approach. It serves the philanthropic needs for each college as well as the Seattle Colleges District as a whole. With implemented structural changes, consolidated resources, improved coordination, and renewed strategy and alignment, we increase our overall fundraising capacity and efficiency. The Seattle Colleges Foundation is the official fundraising arm of Seattle Colleges, including North Seattle College.
