Our Grants

The Satterberg Foundation no longer accepts unsolicited letters of interest, proposals, or grant applications.   

Our organization is committed to a 10% payout plus operational expenses. On top of the 10% payout, we added the $50 million Reparative Action Fund and launched the Metropole building initiative.  This means we have allocated all of our resources for the year. Instead of taking new applications for Core Support, we are focusing on the 201 non-profits with whom we are in deep relationships. To honor and fulfill these commitments to our grantee partners, we are shifting from grantmaking to retention.  Our grantmaking will continue to evolve based on the wisdom of our non-profit leaders, organizations, and community. 

The Satterberg Foundation funds nonprofit organizations in Washington and California whose work promotes a just society and a sustainable environment.

Core Support Grants: Multi-year, general operating funding. Unsolicited inquiries will be accepted, but feel free to reach out to us first.

Unsolicited proposals not accepted for:

Invitational Grants: Single-year funding for organizations identified by our individual Board Members.

Family Awards: Single-year funding for organizations identified by our extended family members.
