We began in 1993 as the Everett Parks Foundation. In 2001, we broadened our scope of work and became the Greater Everett Community Foundation. In 2015, the board of directors voted to change our name to the Community Foundation of Snohomish County, to better reflect our service across our community. See our history here.
- In 1999, we had 25 funds all focused on Everett parks. Today, we have 123 funds focused on all aspects of the community.
- Thanks to our eight Founding families for their early vision for Snohomish County, we hold the largest operating endowment of any other Community Foundation our size in the country.
In 1999, our assets totaled $275,000. Today they are more than $24 million.
- We are projecting to be at $50 million in assets in less than 10 years.
Our average rate of return of our investments since 2004 is 7.29%.
Since our inception we have awarded more than $10.8 million in grants to charitable organizations in our community.
In 2016, together with our donors, we’ve awarded more than $1.5 million in grants.
- More than 500 nonprofit staff and board members attended our free workshops and training events in the past two years.
