Mentoring Program Services

Funding and Capacity Building

We know that securing funding is often one of the biggest challenges facing mentoring programs. That's why we work closely with state and corporate partners to make grant funding available to youth mentoring programs in Washington State. Our grants range from capacity-building opportunities to targeted pilots and projects aimed at addressing specific issues like foster care or juvenile justice. Our goal is to help programs like yours build and sustain effective mentoring initiatives that have a positive impact on young people's lives.

Our grant processes are competitive, but we're here to help you navigate the process successfully. We provide support and guidance throughout the application process, from helping you identify the best funding opportunities for your program to providing personalized feedback on your proposal.

The Chair's Initiative for a Sounder Future is a capacity building grant opportunity offered twice a year. Application deadlines are set with each grant cycle but are typically around April and November.

There are no grant application cycles open at this time.
