Ask For Grants
Seattle Polish Foundation awards grants supporting events and initiatives in line with our mission of promoting Polish culture and language in the Pacific Northwest.
Grants are awarded to local organizations and individuals and you don’t have to be Polish or a Polish organization to receive a grant – SPF is a public 501(c)(3) charity and does not discriminate. What’s important is that the cause being supported by the grant aligns with the SPF mission. For example, our past recipients include the Chopin Foundation NW Chapter concerts and competitions, the NW Film Forum retrospectives, etc. and also individuals organizing concerts, lectures or meetings with Polish interest.
Besides issuing grants with direct financial support, the Foundation can also decide to get involved in a local initiative or project by accepting donations targeting the initiative or even by running an SPF fundraiser supporting the project. If in doubt, contact SPF Officers to learn what is applicable for your cause.
