1 FOSTERING POWERFUL, REWARDING PHILANTHROPY The Seattle Foundation Strategic Plan

2 More than ever before, philanthropy is driving change across our nation. In education, healthcare, the environment and every aspect of society, we see philanthropic dollars not just investing in change, but leading the charge and bringing new energy and insights to bear on our most pressing challenges. The Seattle Foundation has proven its power to bring real change through philanthropy. Through more than six decades of partnerships with generous, committed philanthropists, we are building a healthy community here in King County. Our strategic plan positions The Seattle Foundation to strengthen this philanthropic leadership into the future, with a renewed focus on leveraging the interests and resources of our fundholders to create a stronger, more vibrant community for all. The board and management developed this plan mindful of the changing landscape of the philanthropic field, including greater competitive pressures and changing charitable giving behaviors. Through diligent execution of the plan, the Foundation aims to grow our assets and increase and diversify revenue, to build our financial strength and long-term sustainability. It is only through a financially strong foundation and satisfied fundholders that The Seattle Foundation can carry out our mission to foster powerful and rewarding philanthropy to make King County a stronger, more vibrant community for all. Our fundholders are, indeed, the heart and soul of this organization. By harnessing their social, financial and human capital and pairing them with effective nonprofit organizations, we will indeed make a very focused and strategic impact on the quality of life in the Puget Sound area for years to come. With this preface, we are very pleased to present The Seattle Foundation s Strategic Plan. Maggie Walker President of the Board of Trustees The Seattle Foundation Norman B. Rice President & CEO The Seattle Foundation

We share information broadly and continually seek to learn more to better serve our community and improve our work. We actively encourage input from our fundholders and other stakeholders. COLLABORATION: We believe that the greatest impact is achieved working in partnership, where we can leverage limited resources and unite the strengths of the public, private and nonprofit sectors, and our fundholders. We value collaboration with a wide array of people and perspectives, reflecting the true spirit of a community foundation.
