The Seattle Central Foundation is governed by a board of corporate and community leaders who volunteer their time, talent and resources to benefit Seattle Central students so that they can realize their educational potential and become productive members of Seattle’s economic community.

Throughout the Seattle Central Foundation’s history, every major initiative, from capital campaigns to new scholarship programs has included the critical expertise of our dedicated board members.
