About Us

Greater Tacoma Community Foundation (GTCF) helps people and organizations build a thriving community. Our job is to support generosity across generations.

We support charitable donors in addressing pressing challenges and promising opportunities throughout Pierce County and the region. With a range of giving vehicles that are easy to set up, easy to manage, and provide tax benefits, our donors make this a thriving community today, and provide for generations to come.

1 Making Connections

We listen and learn about the needs and opportunities in our community. For 35 years, we have worked with people and organizations in Pierce County. This gives us the unique ability to link community players and causes.

2 Building Capacity

We strive to enhance quality and diversity. GTCF partners with a broad range of community stakeholders to discover how their time, talent, and money can generate maximum impact. We do this by supporting nonprofits, engaging businesses, and providing donor services that increase engagement with the community.

3 Inspiring Philanthropy

Donors make a big difference in the community by supporting positive social and economic change. Demonstrating the impact of giving back encourages others to invest in the community.

GTCF builds a thriving Pierce County now, and for the future, by supporting community conversations, partnerships, and projects that address key issues in our community. We bring together people, data, and ideas to explore the resources and strategies that create positive social and economic change.

Greater Tacoma Community Foundation has earned its National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations accreditation from the Council on Foundations. This accreditation represents operational effectiveness to foster excellence in community philanthropy.
