Hope for Youth Fund

Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Hope for Youth fund is meant to increase access to athletic, recreational, and positive youth development activities. Hope for Youth’s primary purpose is to support youth sports organizations that serve marginalized and economically distressed communities. The funds are intended to offset the cost of participation and provide opportunities for youth to engage in positive sports, fitness programs, and youth development opportunities.

  • Be a non-profit agency (501c3) or be represented by a fiscal sponsor with non-profit status.
  • Provide activities or services for youth ages 11-19 that will be completed by 12/8/2024.
  • Be in good fiscal standing with the City of Seattle (no outstanding debts or grants)

Funds Available

Organizations can apply for up to $3,500. This is a reimbursement program; funds will be reimbursed after the completion of the program and submission of all required documentation and invoice.
