William C. Butler and Eleanor E. Butler Trust – 2018

Butler Trust has been awarding grants in Snohomish County for decades. Over the years, many local human services agencies have benefited from this generosity. It has been an amazing legacy. After careful deliberation, the trust has decided to sunset in 2019. They will host two more grant cycles. Each grant process will provide two years of funding to the selected programs with a brief review process.
