Pike Place Market Community Fund

Pike Place Market Foundation

The pandemic and economic crisis have demonstrated a valuable lesson: the consistency and reliability of funding from the Pike Place Market Foundation is essential to keeping the Market strong, nimble and healthy. That’s why we’re investing in a sustainable fund that will keep the Market community healthy and resilient now and for generations to come.

The Pike Place Market Community Fund campaign will ensure that the mission of Pike Place Market Foundation continues: to provide opportunities for local farmers, small businesses and to nurture a community that cares for thousands of low-income seniors, families, and workers.


Nurture the Next Chapter
Sustaining Pike Place Market for Future Generations

When you give to Pike Place Market Community Fund, you’re joining a powerful community of Pike Place Market Foundation supporters who help keep our 114-year-old historic Market strong.

The Market Community Fund provides a unique opportunity to transform individual giving into lasting, measurable change — connecting your philanthropic goals to your love for the Market. A gift today, or bequest from your Will or Trust in the future, provides a lasting legacy to the health and sustainability of the Market community.

Go further by creating a Named Fund that establishes a legacy of your giving to Pike Place Market Foundation for yourself, your family, or your business. Funds are invested and professionally managed, providing a sustainable resource for the Market community.

Your contribution may be funded with cash, securities, or real estate, and may be pledged over a five-year period if desired with an initial contribution of at least $10,000.

Family Funds may also be created through a will or other type of deferred gifts. As the funding for deferred gifts may not come to The Market Foundation for many years, the minimum contribution for this type of fund is $100,000.
