2017 Annual Giving Drive: Youth

Many of us have heard the old adage, ‘it takes a village to raise a child,’ but how many of us have reflected on helping a child during the Employee Giving Program’s 2017 Annual Giving Drive? With three week to go, you can still do your part to create a more equitable world for them.

Here are three of the many nonprofit organizations that are doing work with youth!

  • Communities In Schools of Seattle (9250) 2445 Third Avenue S Seattle, WA 98134 – Local affiliate of the nation’s leading dropout prevention organization. We are evidence based and data driven, working with at-risk students in Seattle schools.
  • Launch (9261) 5950 Sixth Avenue S Seattle, WA 98108 – Formerly CDSA, we help children have a brilliant start by providing equitable access to quality preschool, before & after school, and summer programs for children ages 3-12.
  • Sibling House Foundation (9073) 10454 NE 112th St Kirkland, WA 98033 –
    A network of homes where siblings can stay together, as a family, while in foster care.
