At Rick Steves’ Europe, we view travel as a potentially life-changing experience. Teaching good and thoughtful travel is our number one priority. As travel teachers, we inspire people to acquire the skills necessary to make their trip an enjoyable, economical, smooth, and rewarding experience. We strive to be “teachers first,” and encourage travelers, as well as our employees, to be thoughtful, cooperative, and respectful, be open to change and considerate of new ideas, and have a willingness to learn new skills.

Our philanthropic activities support organizations that share the same values. Accordingly, our capacity grant program is intended to enable Snohomish County nonprofits to invest in staff and volunteer education, and infrastructure to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their fundraising, finances, leadership, and sustainability. The committee is interested in funding small grass roots organizations who have been in existence for at least 3 years. We understand that many nonprofits focus their resources on supporting their direct service programs, but we believe that with strong and well-supported back offices, nonprofits can increase their capacity to serve the community.
