Our Mission

A Catalyst for Proactive Community Solutions

Eastside Community Development Fund was founded on the principle of community. We live, work, and play on the Eastside, from the shores of Lake Washington to the beaches of Lake Sammamish and beyond. 

With you, our mission is to build a healthy, vibrant, diverse, and safe community where everyone can thrive, succeed, and realize their full potential.

We bring together local businesses, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and philanthropy to foster and fund innovative solutions and development programs.

We create opportunities for local businesses to get involved in the community, and government agencies ways to expand their outreach. We collaborate with social services providers to find ways to eliminate overlaps, speed up the delivery of services, and fill gaps.

Eastside Community Development Fund receives funding from generous benefactors and distributes grants to social service nonprofits and other organizations to more effectively and efficiently deliver high-impact programs that strengthen our community.

Thank you for your support.


We are fortunate to live in the thriving community on the Eastside of Lake Washington in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. The region has earned a well-deserved reputation as the home for welcoming neighborhoods and some of the largest and most influential companies in the world.

The people, businesses, and local governments in the area are also known for their compassion and thoughtfulness. With you, we are working to create a strong footing for the community, especially for our fellow residents who are less fortunate. 

“Together, we have the ideas and the passion to solve any issue.”

We are proud to be a member of the community and our role in connecting and mobilizing resources to address critical social challanges and growth opportunities. Together, we have the ideas and the passion to solve any issue.

Thank you for your continued support and engagement. We are grateful for your generosity and service, and for the opportunity to serve the Eastside.
