We are now … NW Children’s Foundation!

We have some exciting news! NW Children’s Fund is now NW Children’s Foundation! Over the last 34 years, NWCF has matured into a leader in Western Washington’s child abuse treatment and prevention network. Changing from “Fund” to “Foundation” better reflects our expanded mission, impact and role in the community. Yet we will continue to be the NWCF you count on to support effective programs that heal abused children, strengthen fragile families and help at-risk youth, and that offers cutting-edge training to improve solutions in child welfare. Thank you!

This paves the way for us to distribute $1M in life-changing grants this year. The delicious food from Chef John Howie, John Curley’s colorful banter, and the energetic bidding were outstanding.
