The mission of the Market Foundation is to preserve the traditions and diversity of the Pike Place Market neighborhood. We accomplish that mission by protecting the Market's most precious resource -- it's people. We provide ongoing annual support to four human service agencies based in the Market: the Downtown Food Bank, Pike Market Medical Clinic, Senior Center and Child Care & Preschool. These agencies serve downtown Seattle's 10,000 low-income and elderly residents. In addition, we provide funding for low-income housing in the Market and historic preservation projects. Our work helps make this neighborhood a community.
