What we do:

Seattle Milk Fund erases a financial barrier that prevents struggling parents from pursuing a college education.  We open doors to better jobs, renewed confidence and financial stability, lifting families out of poverty.

By paying the costs of child care for full-time college students, we ensure that their children are safe while the students focus on their studies.  By assisting with tuition and emergency needs, we further relieve students’ financial stress.  And by providing caring volunteer mentors, we encourage and inspire students to persevere.

Spring Campaign Kicked Off with GiveBIG and Keeps On Giving…Luncheon Photo-happy girl with stuffed animal

SMF invests upwards of $25,000 in a single mother, and her two children, over a two year degree program.  We willingly devote family, education, childcare and holiday support to these families, because we know that our investment will reap benefits for generations to come.  When you invest in Seattle Milk Fund, you invest in the future of a young family!  And your investment will pay it forward for generations.

As our spring campaign kicked off with GiveBIG on May 6th, we had many partner with us to help families succeed.  Your gifts on May 6th, and any day thereafter, are helping a family enter college, earn a degree and earn a living wage.  Our graduates, who may not have been able to even put food on the table in years past, are buying their first homes, accepting full time employment with wages far superior to minimum wages, and even moving on to Master’s programs to excel further.  Read More…
