What we do:

Seattle Milk Fund empowers parents toward higher education opportunities by funding child care grants and providing family support.

Our goal is for parents to realize their higher education potential, which can create a brighter and more stable financial future for their families.

A Seattle Milk Fund Member has passed away

We are saddened to hear of long-time Seattle Milk Fund Member Marge Strandoo’s recent passing. She was an avid Seattle Milk Fund supporter who had served as Treasurer in the Jean H. Shields Circle.

A memorial is being planned by her family. Her obituary can be found here.

We’re 108!

That’s right, it’s Seattle Milk Fund’s 108th birthday. On February 11, 1907, Seattle Milk Fund (then called the Fruit and Flower Mission) was incorporated. As one of King County’s longest running nonprofits, Seattle Milk Fund has shown to be adaptable to the changing needs of the low-income families it serves. Show your love and donate $19.07 today to celebrate Seattle Milk Fund’s 108 years of service to local families!
