Windermere Foundation Quarterly Report

Posted in News from the Foundation by Christine Wood



Greetings from the Windermere Foundation,

I am excited to share with you that the Windermere Foundation has received $521,000 in donations this year; this represents a 16 percent increase from this time last year! Thanks to our generous agents, brokers, staff, and owners, along with public donations, many low-income families have received the support they need to stay in their homes and meet their children’s most basic needs.

I would also like to thank our Windermere Foundation Representatives for their commitment and continued support of the Foundation. They volunteer countless hours to both raising and distributing money – which can be very demanding of both time and energy. Again, thank you – you are an important part of the Foundation’s success!

I would like to share a few letters from some of our recipient organizations, illustrating how your support is truly making a difference in the lives of others.

Capitol Hill Housing Foundation/Seattle-Capitol Hill 
“On behalf of our staff and residents, we are very grateful for your generous grant. The trust you have placed in us, through your gift, allows us to create diverse communities that make life better for families of modest means. We value your partnership with CHH, and we thank you for your support of our work.”

-Capitol Hill Housing Foundation

Clothes For Kids/Snohomish County Group
On behalf of the Clothes for Kids Board, volunteers and the families we serve, I would like to thank the Windermere Foundation for the generous gift. These funds will help fulfill our ‘basic needs’ program allowing us to purchase much needed clothing and necessities for low income students in preschool through 12th grade throughout Snohomish County. Thanks to our supporters, we are well on our way to serving 6,000 children…”

The Newport, OR office donated funds to Operation Snackpacks which is part of a nationally recognized social program called The Backpack Program. The original concept was developed after a school nurse asked a local food bank for help because hungry students were coming to her with stomach ages and dizziness. The local food bank began to provide the school children with groceries in nondescript backpacks to carry home.

As always, thank you for your continued support of the Windermere Foundation. Many low-income families are receiving basic necessities because of your commitment to helping others.
