Recreation For All

The Recreation for All fund, through the Seattle Parks District, provides financial support to local nonprofit organizations, small businesses, community groups, and individuals to provide culturally relevant programs and events throughout the City of Seattle.  Programs or events must be held in City of Seattle community centers, parks, or facilities in neighborhoods where health and enrichment disparities are prevalent and serve the funds priority populations and communities including adults, LGBTQIA, immigrant and refugee populations, people of color, and people with disabilities.

Potential Partners

The fund opens for applications annually seeking new partners with innovative programs and events.  Each year the fund seeks to partner with 25 NEW partners to provide culturally relevant programming that meets the needs of the community they serve.  Potential partners need to include information on sustainability and how they would maintain they're programming after the one year of funding.
