Review the application now so you know what information to enter ahead of time.

The Whitehorse Foundation
As a supporting organization of the Seattle Foundation, the mission of The Whitehorse Foundation is to fund organizations working to improve the quality of life for residents of Snohomish County. Grants are awarded to nonprofits for project support or ongoing operating support, with special interest given to programs in the early stages of development that convey an achievable funding plan or compelling impact. Letters of inquiry can be submitted at any time. Questions can be directed to or (206) 515-2109.

4Culture – on-going grants
Individuals or arts organizations that’s never earned funding from 4Culture before can apply for Open 4Culture and receive up to $1,500 for arts, historic preservation, or King County Heritage projects. Applicants must meet with the Open 4Culture Coordinator to see if this program is the right fit. For more information, email Melissa Newbill at or call (206) 263-1603.

Unfortunately, unforeseen disasters like a severe storm, fire, or crumbling infrastructure can leave arts organizations scrambling. For immediate emergency relief, 4Culture has set aside funds specifically for projects that need quick turnaround response time, usually within 30 days of approval. Contact Debra Twersky at or (206) 263-1610 for more information.
