Annual Report 2017

Pike Place Market Foundation

Addressing Our CommunitY

Dear Supporters,

This has been a monumental year of growth and opportunity for the Market community. This summer we celebrated the completion of the historic district of Pike Place Market with the opening of the MarketFront. By now, I hope you’ve experienced this transformation for yourself, walking through the historic Desimone Bridge out onto the open-air MarketFront plaza. The views, the public seating and the expanded opportunities for more Market artists and merchants are a welcome breath of fresh air and a look into a bright future for our city.

It’s particularly bright because the MarketFront has allowed us to expand upon our mission at the Pike Place Market Foundation to support the heart and soul of the Market – its people.  At a time of unprecedented growth in Seattle and a gap in affordable housing and services for our most-vulnerable residents, the Market’s commitment to housing and serving our low-income neighbors is more important than ever.

The MarketFront is now home to 40 low-income seniors who desperately needed a community of care and support. Just last week, on September 19, we also opened a new neighborhood center on the MarketFront – The Market Commons. Located on Western Avenue just steps away from the lobby of the new MarketFront housing this cozy, community space is a place for our neighbors to access a wide array of services and support in and around the Market. It’s a place for our social service partners in the community to host activities and expand their offerings and a gathering place for everyone in our community.

Meanwhile, our support for the legacy services here in Pike Place Market has also grown. Through your generosity last year we were able to increase funding to provide tuition assistance to more families at the preschool; cover more uncompensated health care services and visits at the Clinic; and help more seniors access housing and support throughout the community. Read more about the life-changing work that your dollars support in this report.

Next time you’re in the Market, we welcome you to stop in to learn more about The Market Commons. You, too, are part of this thriving, caring community at Pike Place Market. We hope to see you there!


Lillian Sherman, Executive Director

With your support last year to our annual fund, we granted $926,502 to vital services here in the Market. Your donations help make these services possible for our community.

Heritage House at the Market

Early in 2016 Heritage House welcomed a new Executive Director, Jennifer Hermann. Jennifer commented that, “This year was a time of coherence at Heritage House. I believe that our greatest achievement was the forming of our current management team and the work that has been done to put standards in place to support our residents and staff.” In 2016 Heritage House served 73 residents, 95% of whom are low-income. The management team worked hard in 2016 to research and prepare big changes to Heritage House’s dining and activity programs!

Pike Market Food Bank

Pike Market Food Bank served an average of 800 families a week through grocery distribution and home delivery. Their shoppers consisted mostly of housed Market and downtown residents, many of whom are Seattle locals. They also provided no-cook options to better serve their clients who experience homelessness. Restaurants like Le PanierPirosky Pirosky, and Beecher’s Handmade Cheese donated prepared foods which made life easier on the Food Bank’s clients who may not have access to a kitchen. Vendors and farmers donated fresh produce and the Rainbow Birds, a group of children from Pike Market Preschool, helped the Food Bank collect it weekly. This process, which is called gleaning, is a great example of the whole community coming together! The Food Bank relied on volunteers and Americorps members to keep it running and this year their volunteers put in between 1500-1800 volunteer hours a month!

Neighborcare Health at Pike Place Market

It was a very busy year for Neighborcare Health! A total of 4,794 unduplicated patients received care in 27,785 visits through the Pike Market Medical Clinic and street and neighborhood outreach teams. They also held 12 Diabetes Days, providing one-stop diabetes focused care and support. Neighborcare has also been working on improving their own systems, introducing Lean as a management tool in the fall of 2016. At a time when Seattle is experiencing a homelessness crisis we are thankful for all the hard work that Neighborcare does!

Food Access Program

In 2016, the Food Access Program continued to expand their reach to help our neighbors gain access to even more local, nutritious produce. The Farm to Go Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) offered weekly boxes of local produce to over 50 low-income people at a subsidized rate for 15 weeks. These folks had the option to pay for their CSA share using EBT SNAP funds, making the produce more available to those who otherwise could not afford the program. The Food Access Program also donated 5,268 lbs of produce from the CSA and Pike Place Express Markets to the Pike Place Market Food Bank.  “The Farm to Go CSA has been a great success for us. It provides a reliable, weekly source of delicious fruits and vegetables to those in need” says Abbie Abramovich, Food Access Program Coordinator. “We often heard members saying they’re more willing to try new food and recipes because of the CSA.”

Pike Market Childcare and Preschool

Pike Market Childcare and Preschool distributed over $330,000 in tuition assistance to 70% of families in their program, which represents 36 different families. The Preschool also started their first ever Equity Change Team, to steward an inclusive, diverse welcoming environment. Perhaps most exciting, the Pike Market Childcare and Preschool was the only program in the state that worked to raise $17,000 in funds to continue paying their Foster Grandparents from April 2017-October 2017 when funding was suddenly discontinued. On top of all this Pike Market Childcare and Preschool are celebrating their fourth year serving babies, the most vulnerable and undeserved population in our community.

Pike Market Senior Center

Pike Market Senior Center served seniors over 48,000 nutritious meals that were so tasty Executive Director Jeannie Falls says members stop her in the hall to tell her how much they liked the cooking! And, because of great in-kind support from the community, the Meal Program spent only 50 cents per meal. The Senior Center’s social workers were able to make life easier for many seniors by giving them resources, taking them to medical appointments, and helping 30 homeless members secure safe, permanent housing. Meanwhile, the program staff made life more fun with programs for exercise and entertainment, field trips, and a strong, supportive community.

Pike Brewing: Trendsetters in Community Giving and Craft Beer

Here’s something you might not know: Pike Brewing is Seattle’s original beer trendsetter. They’ve cared about local, craft beer and giving back to their community since 1989! Throughout the 28 years that they have called Pike Place Market their home they have stayed true to their ideals.

Read More

Starting with the craft aspect of their beer, Pike Brewing was the first craft beer brewery to open up in downtown Seattle and they were the fifth craft brewery in the state. They brewed their Pike IPA before hops had become the preferred flavor among bearded, plaid-sporting Seattleites.  Plus, they recognized how special the Pike Place Market was when they chose it as the location for their brewery.

With the slogan “Meet the Producer” the Market is huge on keeping it local and Pike Brewing has fit into the community values since they first opened their doors. When they re-released their original Pike Place Ale in October of 2016 it was more local than ever because they made it using all local northwest malts.

And of course, they give back. Pike Brewing supports the social services and low income housing located in the Market and they put their money where their mouth is in two different ways. First, proceeds from Pike Place Ale support the Pike Place Market Foundation! Every time you buy a Pike Place Ale we are gifted funds which we can then turn around and grant to our social services here in the Market. Second, Pike Brewing always shows up at the Market Foundation events – from our Pike Up! campaign fundraisers to Sunset Supper, Arcade Lights and their infamous Piketoberfest.

If you are feeling thirsty AND supportive after reading all about their amazing beer you can come on down to the Pike Pub and get their beer straight from the keg. Thank you Pike Brewing for making it possible to drink delicious beer and build community at the same time.

AmeriCorps Members are Making it Happen at Pike Place Market

Pike Place Market is one of the biggest food landmarks in the country – a public market brimming with fresh produce and local food delicacies. While many see the Market as the perfect place to visit on vacation a select few are drawn to it as the perfect long term volunteering opportunity: introducing our AmeriCorps VISTA members!

They join our team in the Market for many different reasons. Sarah Grider, one of the Food Bank’s 2016 VISTAs explained that what appealed to her about the AmeriCorps position at Pike Place Market was, “having the opportunity to connect the knowledge I had about growing food to the action of giving it away to the people I wanted to have it.” Fueled by a diverse bevy of reasons, every year 11 incredible individuals come from all over the country to serve as the Foundation’s VISTA cohort. They help keep things running smoothly at social service agencies within the Market, such as The Market Foundation, Pike Market Food Bank, Pike Market Childcare and Preschool, the Food Access Program, as well as at two other food banks in the greater Seattle area.

In 2016, over their collective 24,880 hours, they excelled in many roles: Food Access Coordinator, Community Resource Developer, The Market Commons Coordinator, Communications Coordinator and Community Outreach Coordinator. This talented group of young adults has not only kept things running smoothly but they have created amazing growth at the Market. Erica Ward, The Market Commons Coordinator, worked tirelessly to build relationships with different community members and players in order to understand and plan programming for Pike Place Market’s new neighborhood center: The Market Commons. Abbie Abramovich, who works for the Food Access Program, helped expand the Market’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program to include Market residents. And, a whole team of AmeriCorps VISTA members has been working hard to completely rethink how the Pike Market Food Bank distributes food – working towards a system that preserves client dignity. In the end they all agreed, the biggest reward was seeing the impact their hard work had on the vulnerable community they care so much about.

Thank you so much to all of our Americorps VISTAs past and present. The hard work you do every year has a real and lasting impact here at the Market, we couldn’t do this without you!

A Shared Love For Philanthropy and Pike Place Market

The Thursday Walkers embody the spirit of community. Perusing Market Charm panel #46 on the new MarketFront you will discover the names of nearly 50 women, from different backgrounds, different parts of the country, and different occupations. And right, smack-dab in the middle of the panel is the Charm that sums it all up: Best Friends Forever.

Founded by Helen Strusser in 2003 The Thursday Walkers are a group of energetic, fun-loving women whose walks have inspired great conversations, lasting friendships and together they have given back to our Market Community over and over again.

Helen started the group at a time in her own life when walking was a remedy – a way to move and to heal. She and the other five original walkers graciously brought many more women into their fold. Many other Walkers shared the ways in which the group has changed their own lives. Carol got linked into the group after moving to Seattle from Florida. She knew no one in her new city but somehow the Walkers found her and just like that, she had an indomitable group of friends to support her and help her adjust. Lynne Shira found the group right after she retired. For her going from very busy to very idle left her hurting, but the Walkers were there to give her purpose and help her transition. Now the Walkers are an ever fluctuating tumbleweed, gladly inviting anyone who needs them into their mix.

Part of what makes them such a strong and abiding bunch is their commitment to shared ideals: philanthropy and a love for Pike Place Market. Many of the Thursday Walkers live in downtown Seattle, making Pike Place their backyard and with such close ties they have perfected the art of giving back.

Over the years they have taken on their own fundraising projects for The Market Foundation like the 2011 Men of the Market calendar, which raised $35,000 to support the Market’s community services. And, when we launched the Pike Up! campaign in 2014 they were some of the first to jump on board. Together they donated for an entire panel of Market Charms to commemorate their walks together and many of donated for family Charms and Hoofprints as well. They have worked hard to make sure that at least a couple of Walkers act as board members on the The Market Foundation board, putting in the behind the scenes work that a board seat requires. Every year they support our events such as Sunset Supper and create personal connections with the social services by volunteering at the Pike Market Food Bank or donating their Mahjong winnings to the Preschool. They put their heart and soul into everything that they do.

Thank you Thursday Walkers! You are an unstoppable force of good – our growing, caring community wouldn’t be what it is today without you.
