The Harvest Foundation is not currently accepting letters of inquiry for 2022.

We are evaluating our grant application process.
We do not expect to substantially change our areas of funding priorities, but that will be considered.

Please watch this web site for updates.

The Harvest Foundation was created in 2000 as a private, family foundation to provide funding primarily in the areas of Social Services and Education. The Harvest Foundation awards grants to 501(c)(3) organizations located in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho, and Montana.

The Foundation awards annual grants in the amount of $10,000 each. Multi-year grants are not considered. Grants will not be made to the same organization for more than three consecutive years.

Grants must not constitute more than 20% of the supported program’s annual budget. The Foundation will consider applications for general operating grants only for organizations whose mission and operations are closely aligned with the Harvest Foundation’s funding areas.

Social Services
The Foundation seeks to support the work of community social service agencies. It is specifically interested in organizations that provide services in two areas:

  • Promoting economic self-sufficiency through education and training of youth or families with children.
  • Serving the elderly by providing services to help senior citizens live independently.

Education Grants
Grants for education are made in two areas:

  • Teacher training in technology and curriculum development.
    The Foundation desires to help teachers make effective use of new technologies, particularly computers, in their schools. Grants will be awarded to educational organizations to fund technology training for teachers and technology curriculum development. Applications from organizations serving low-income or underserved children will be favored. Grants for capital expenses are ineligible.
  • Supporting arts programs.
    The Foundation’s goals for grants in arts education are to assist arts organizations and instructors to provide hands-on classes in the schools. The desired outcome of these classes must include an alignment with state education requirements. Applications from organizations serving low-income or underserved children will be favored. Funding of both capital items and operating program costs will be considered.

Application Process
The Harvest Foundation is not currently accepting letters of inquiry or grant applications.
