Kreielsheimer Foundation was established by joint bequests of the estates of Leo T. Kreielsheimer (d. 1975) and his wife, Greye McCormick Kreielsheimer (d. 1980). Its first grants were given in 1981, eventually giving nearly $100 million to Seattle area arts and education organizations before ceasing operation in 2000, 25 years after Leo Kreielsheimer's death, as per his wishes.
