About Us

GTCF is a Community Connector, a Catalyst for Positive Change, and a Trusted Philanthropic Partner.

Strong relationships lead to a stronger community. 

At Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, we’ve seen how much more we can accomplish when we work together. Since 1981, community members have shared their commitment to a thriving Pierce County by partnering with GTCF to bring their visions to life and build a legacy for future generations. From donors and nonprofit organizations to community leaders and innovative individuals, GTCF has provided resources that empower people to make a difference.

Read stories and insights about building a stronger Pierce County from some of our community partners in our book, “Pierce County Partners”.

Through financial stewardship of more than 500 funds and over $100 million in assets as well as strategic initiatives for the community, GTCF supports the region in realizing its full potential.

Greater Tacoma Community Foundation provides resources like funding, philanthropic services for individual donors, support for community partnerships, and community dialogue around pressing issues. As a nationally accredited nonprofit organization, GTCF supports generosity across generations within Pierce County.
