    Seattle Milk Fund

    Seattle Milk Fund provides child care grants and family support to low-income, full-time students at King County’s colleges and universities. While parents are in school, their children receive a valuable learning opportunity in a licensed, quality child care facility or preschool. Seattle Milk Fund helps parents realize their higher education potential, which can create a brighter and more stable financial future for their families.

    As one of Washington’s longest-running charitable organizations, Seattle Milk Fund has been fueling families’ futures since 1907. Students are provided a quarterly child care grant of up to $1,300 per child, and a quarterly family support grant of $450 per family.

    In 2013-2014, Seattle Milk Fund presented a total of $261,548 in grants to local families. Since changing its giving focus in 1965 to provide higher education and family support grants, and in 1990 to include child care grants, Seattle Milk Fund has awarded more than $16M to local families.
