GiveTogether

Joining with others to take a deep-dive into critical community issues

GiveTogether brings like-minded philanthropists together to learn, invest and, most importantly, multiply the power of their giving.  It’s a way for people to really roll up their sleeves and dig deep into the causes they care about most.  Seattle Foundation’s GiveTogether is collective giving at its best, demonstrating what powerful, rewarding philanthropy is really all about.  

GiveTogether is built on the premise that effective philanthropy is informed philanthropy.  We begin by learning, listening to local experts, targeting specific needs, and designing and reviewing Requests for Proposal.  We visit nonprofit organizations, collaborate to select grant recipients, and then collectively invest in the promising proposals.  Each year, GiveTogether brings forward two to four specific elements of our Healthy Community Framework and asks philanthropists to join together in this shared experience of learning and investing. Seattle Foundation’s staff leads the effort, helping everyone learn more about the issue at the grassroots level and coordinating the grant submission and review process.  In addition, Seattle Foundation ‘seeds’ GiveTogether with an initial investment. 

GiveTogether teams have collaborated to invest in:

• Affordable access to the arts
• Youth and the Outdoors
• Global opportunity for women and girls (in partnership with Seattle International Foundation)
• Homelessness
• Mental Health
