Mission + History

Pike Place Market Foundation

Pike Place Market Foundation supports the heart of the Market – its people.

By helping our neighbors who work, learn and live in and around the Market, the Foundation’s mission is to nurture a thriving Market community.

Established in 1982, The Market Foundation has granted more than $36 million to provide housing, healthcare, healthy food, childcare and a community of support to our downtown and Market neighbors. Over the past 36 years, The Market Foundation has contributed to a neighborhood model that allows a diverse community to live and thrive here at Pike Place Market.

We are guided by the following values: collaboration, inclusion, respect, optimism and gratitude.
