Every child deserves to be safe, healthy and loved, which is why NW Children’s Fund dedicates itself 100% to ending the complicated cycle of child abuse and neglect—and ensures that 100% of individual donations go directly to programs doing just that. By finding and funding a network of the most effective and innovative organizations in Western Washington, we’re changing the lives of our community’s most fragile and vulnerable. Join us. Together, we are making hope work.


The mission of NW Children's Fund is to end the cycle of child abuse and neglect by investing in programs for at-risk children and their families, and inspiring informed philanthropy devoted to improving child welfare.

We know that breaking this complicated cycle requires a multi-point strategy. Not only must we intervene when abuse or neglect has already occurred and help the fragile victims heal, we also must work to keep it from happening at all.
That’s why NW Children’s Fund impacts several critical points in the complex cycle of abuse and neglect. By supporting therapeutic foster care, youth mentoring, family stability and so much more, we’re providing the support systems children need to be in a safe, nurturing environment, and working with families to alleviate the stresses and deficiencies that can lead to abuse and neglect.


We provide grants to agencies that are dedicated to:

We also provide education to the child welfare community through our annual Forum, as well as hosting other events and opportunities to explore best practices and new research in the field.

Your support of NWCF can make a lasting difference in the life of a vulnerable child.  Please donate today.
