Our mission is to engage women in philanthropy and to collectively fund grants to initiatives that serve this region. The goal is to identify unmet needs in the community and provide grants to nonprofits for impactful change in King County. We are committed to promoting volunteerism by exposing our Membership to many local worthwhile nonprofit organizations. We help our Members become more educated and informed about philanthropic choices and meet women who share their interests.
Our Membership Diversity Commitment
In order to ensure that PYP Seattle’s membership represents the vast diversity of King County and the breadth of communities that we aim to serve, we intend to consider only women of color for membership for the next three years.

Upcoming Events And Reminders For Current Members
Join our local Make-A-Wish chapter virtually at Wish Night® Gala & Auction as we celebrate the lasting and transformational impact of a wish. For 35 years, Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington has helped whisk children away from the harsh realities of illness and create an alternate world where kids can be giddy, unstoppable and hopeful again. This is more than just a wish; it’s a Joyful Reality made possible by you.
Video – 2020 Grant Cycle Recap
I feel like I have less and less time, and PYP is a great way to combine being with talented, interesting, like-minded people, and also doing something great for a charity in our community. Combining funds really allows our members to make a big impact on a local organization. I am honored to be part of this group!
I feel more connected to Seattle’s local charities (or at least more knowledgeable). It was really inspiring to hear how passionate our PYP members are about the charities they support. I also loved the opportunity to get to know a few more women, and hope to connect with even more of the group in the future.
PYP Seattle is a great way to get more involved in the community in a variety of ways – as a financial contributor to a program/organization in need: as a neighbor getting to know others in the area in deeper and more meaningful ways; and as a woman banding together with other strong, successful women to really make a difference.
