Our Grantees

We have recently updated our focus and grant-making priorities. The following examples are a representative list of grants that best illustrate the past funding priorities of The Mother House Fund.

Youth Ultimate Project (YUP) 

The Mother House Fund Advisory Committee has been impressed year–after–year by the experience the YUP team creates for coaches and campers through their Youth Ultimate Frisbee summer camp program in Cambodia. Our 2016 grant supported the purchase of equipment, supplies and food for camp participants, as well as the new scholarship program for Cambodian camp participants and coaches.

Killer Whale Tales
 Killer Whale Tales works in K-6th grade classrooms, providing science-intensive environmental education throughout the Pacific Northwest. The program empowers students to become active environmental stewards who can make strong and lasting contributions in their communities. The Mother House Fund has supported this program because we believe the curriculum provided by the Killer Whale Tales team is filling an important gap in our local classrooms.
