Seattle Foundation is honored to be part of a unique partnership with the launch of the Seahawks Players Equality & Justice for All Action Fund. The Foundation is supporting a united effort from Seattle Seahawks players to support education and leadership programs to address equality and justice.
The Seahawks players initiated the nonprofit fund after more than a year of team discussion and reflection. They announced the initiative on social media, saying that the effort is aimed to create lasting change and build a more compassionate and inclusive society.

Players are making contributions to the fund and have invited anyone to join them in supporting the fund with tax-deductible donations. Some of the players who have spoken eloquently about the need for this action fund include Doug Baldwin and Michael Bennett. Coach Pete Carroll has been a strong supporter of the effort and the need for more compassion in our society.
The partnership melds the Seahawks players’ desire to invest in their community and increase equality with our long history of deep community insight and effective philanthropic advising. The players plan to establish an advisory board to make decisions about grant strategy and distribution.
The Foundation’s partnership with the new Players fund is closely aligned with our focus on equity and opportunity and will invest substantial resources in grantmaking to effective nonprofits and programs.
Seattle Foundation is committed to creating a positive and inclusive community where all have equitable access to opportunity and the benefits of a healthy community.
