NWCF Awards $100,000 Grant to Treehouse

By Jake Satisky, Marketing and Policy Intern

NW Children’s Foundation has awarded Treehouse the three-year $100,000 Evergreen Grant in recognition of the success of our Graduation Success program and 25-year relationship with the organization.

“NW Children’s Foundation is excited to partner with Treehouse this way,” said Victoria Helm, Executive Director of NWCF. “We are inspired by Treehouse’s commitment and drive to expand its educational programs to support more youth in foster care in Washington state.”

Since 1985, NWCF has awarded more than $17 million to organizations in Western Washington. With the Evergreen Grant, its contributions to Treehouse will total $540,000.

“We’re proud to be associated with Treehouse, and we laud their efforts,” said Lori Mueller, NWCF Associate Director and Chief Financial Officer. “It’s a well-run organization with excellent leadership and strives to stay out in front of what children and youth need.”

NWCF is a Seattle-based nonprofit that works to end the cycle of child abuse and neglect through educational outreach and grantmaking. Its grants go to local organizations that support children and provide assistance for struggling families.

The first grant Treehouse received was from NWCF back in 1994.

“NWCF is still there for us now,” said Janis Avery, CEO of Treehouse. “Together, we’ll ensure every child who has experienced foster care has the opportunities and support they need to pursue their dreams.”

The Evergreen Grant will aid Treehouse as we expand Graduation Success statewide by 2022.
