Staff from each of the Market’s social service agencies proudly pose with their 2016 grants from Pike Place Market Foundation!
Last night we celebrated “Cut the Pie” in Pike Place Market, which is the culmination of the work we’ve accomplished together with you, our supporters, this year. Every year Pike Place Market Foundation grants funds to each of the social service agencies for the year ahead and because of you, these grants grow in size and in impact every year.
With your support, we granted $886,623 to vital services here in the Market. Your donations to Pike Place Market Foundation make these services possible for our community:
Each agency was presented with a check by a Board member from Pike Place Market Foundation:
