Puget Sound AFN is a regional chapter of grantmakers who invest in opportunities for low and moderate income individuals and families to build economic well-being. Members include private, public, corporate, and community foundations, public-sector funders, and financial institutions who want to help residents of the Puget Sound secure economic stability, for now and for years to come. Puget Sound AFN connects funders and their peers in the nonprofit, public, and private sectors. Together they share promising programs and smart strategies, gather knowledge to make their grantmaking more effective, and work to increase investments in asset building.

Puget Sound AFN members meet regularly and host events to share ideas. Puget Sound AFN grantmakers should contact Annette Case if interested in joining this chapter.

How We Work

  • Educate: Puget Sound AFN members learn from each other and from other organizations as they seek solutions to local challenges and explore the potential for aligned investment strategies to address them effectively. The chapter will host funder forums to explore asset-building strategies with both local leaders and national experts.
  • Influence: Puget Sound AFN engages key stakeholders to grow their knowledge and support. This includes efforts to raise the visibility of asset-building within the broader community of foundations, public-sector funders, and financial institutions.
  • Elevate: Puget Sound AFN is positioned to highlight promising practices, key issues, and innovations in the field through funder-only dialogues as well as other convenings. Members provide an insightful  voice to inform state and national conversations.
  • Grow: Puget Sound AFN seeks to increase the number of grantmakers and resources focused on economic well-being. Members leverage one another’s interests and investments and actively look for additional funders willing to invest in Washington State.
