Seattle Polish Foundation (SPF) is the main Polish-American charity in Seattle and the
Washington state. We organize and co-sponsor events promoting Polish culture and
heritage in the Pacific Northwest.
The following are the highlights of the Foundation activities.
Seattle Polish Foundation
In 2016, the Polish Home Foundation changed the name to Seattle Polish Foundation and acquired a new logo. The new name reflects better our mission and our role as the main Polish charity in Seattle and the State of Washington. A new website is currently under construction.
On May 3, the Seattle Foundation (SF) hosts the annual GiveBIG event - a
one-day only, online charitable giving event to benefit local nonprofits.
The reason this is important to us as the Polish community is that every donation given during this event
gets additional small bonus money from "angels" working with the SF.
You can support all local Polish causes, events and orgs in the Pacific Northwest by donating during this event.
The Polish Home Foundation partners with the SF for this event.
You can support your favorite cause by donating to the PHF through the
Seattle Foundation PHF Profile Page
and providing a comment where the money should go.
