The Office of Advancement

The Seattle Colleges Office of Advancement coordinates fundraising efforts district-wide to advance the mission of Seattle Colleges (including South Seattle College, Seattle Central College and North Seattle College). We work directly with the institutionally-related Seattle Colleges Foundation to connect donors who want to impact student achievement and strengthen the Seattle community. Donors’ interests range from student scholarships and faculty development to high quality academic programs and capital improvements.

In 2018, the Office of Advancement launched the Seattle Colleges Foundation, a new institutionally-related nonprofit that emerged from a process of consultation and collaboration among the campuses comprising Seattle Colleges, each of which previously supported a separate foundation.

The move to a single, unified foundation follows a prevailing national model for multiple-college districts adopting an integrated approach. It serves the philanthropic needs for each college as well as the Seattle Colleges District as a whole. With implemented structural changes, consolidated resources, improved coordination, and renewed strategy and alignment, we increase our overall fundraising capacity and efficiency. The Seattle Colleges Foundation is the official fundraising arm of Seattle Colleges, including South Seattle College.

South Seattle College Foundation

South Seattle College is fortunate to have additional philanthropic support from the South Seattle College Foundation, an independent, nonprofit 501 (c) (3) that provides scholarship support to students, and promotes and supports educational programs and training pursuits at the college. The South Seattle College Foundation was established in 1980 and created the 13th Year Promise Scholarship in 2008, which served as inspiration for Seattle Promise.
