About Us


Seattle Parks Foundation is a 20-year-old nonprofit with a history of successful planning, organizing advocacy,

and fundraising on behalf of our city’s public spaces. We also believe that access to parks and public spaces is a

critical indicator as Seattle strives to become a more equitable city. Our workplace is highly collaborative,

professional, and respectful while nurturing a sense of fun. We are led by a strong and strategically engaged

board of directors, and we strive to ensure that our team reflects the diversity of Seattle and has the cultural

competence to ensure that we serve all residents of the city


The following are our core commitments as an organization:

  • We listen to learn, work in partnership, and lift up others.
  • We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This means confronting our assumptions about structures of oppression and, in response, continually remaking our internal culture.
  • We are accountable. When we commit, we deliver. When we make a mistake, we accept responsibility.
  • We embrace change and the challenges that come with it.
  • We nurture a culture of gratitude and continually celebrate and thank volunteers, staff, partners, and donors.


Seattle Parks Foundation is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and we believe that having staff, consultants and

volunteers with diverse backgrounds enables us to meet our mission while creating an inclusive organization

that reflects our values. We strongly encourage applications from all races, ages, religions, sexes, marital

statuses, sexual orientations, gender identity, national origin, citizenship, military or veteran status, or any

other basis protected by applicable laws, regulations, or guidelines relating to discrimination.
