Ballard Boys and Girls Club

OUR MISSION:
To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.


Boys & Girls Clubs of America marked its centennial year in 2006, celebrating 100 years of providing hope and opportunity to young people across the country. In 2007, Boys & Girls Clubs of America introduced “Impact 2012,” an effort to reach deeper into the lives of those we serve, impacting them in a lasting, comprehensive way. The campaign revolves around three core impact areas: academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good character and citizenship.


In a recent report, eighty-five percent of Club alumni said that Club staff helped them to know right from wrong, and eighty two percent said that staff helped their self-confidence as a child.

The SOVREN Guild

http://www.sovren.org

 

In 1989, SOVREN, in conjunction with the Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiasts, held their first Pacific Northwest Historics at Seattle International Raceway. Approximately 59 cars participated, and tradition was established. In 1990, the Historics became a fund raiser for Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center in Seattle and 68 cars participated and $7500 was raised. Over the years SOVREN has worked hand in hand with the SOVREN Guild and the Historics have raised over $8.3 million dollars, most of which goes directly towards uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

The nonprofit Northwest Kidney Centers provides 80 percent of the dialysis care in King and Clallam counties, educates the public about kidney health, and collaborates with UW Medicine in the Kidney Research Institute. Northwest Kidney Centers’ staff of 550 delivers more than 200,000 treatments a year in 14 dialysis centers and 11 hospitals.

Since 1962, Northwest Kidney Centers has sustained lives and inspired hope. Its mission – to promote health, independence and quality of life for people with kidney disease – remains vital today.

 

The Moyer Foundation

Through the generosity of a giving community, The Moyer Foundation supports programs that directly serve critical needs of children in severe distress. Since its inception, The Moyer Foundation has raised over $20 million in donations and in kind support to help support hundreds of different programs that help children in distress in a variety of ways.

In addition to helping children in Washington State, The Moyer Foundation created and funds Camp Erin, the largest network of bereavement camps in the country for children and teens who are grieving a significant loss; Camp Mariposa, for children affected by addiction in their families; and community partnerships to help raise awareness and support initiatives that share in the mission of helping children in distress.

 

Women's Funding Alliance

http://www.womensfundingnetwork.org

 

Women's Funding Alliance (WFA) is the leading foundation in Washington State that invests in and advocates for women and girls. By strategically supporting marginalized and under-funded groups that promote progressive change for women and girls, they have a dramatic impact on their increased ability to serve our community.


Since their inception, WFA has invested in more than 100 organizations, most of them very small, in the Puget Sound region. Together these organizations form a community that is advancing the status of all women and girls. An important part of their work is assisting these groups by raising their profiles and articulating their needs to the greater funding community.
