Our Partners and Employers

Thanks to our thousands of supporters over the past century, Uplift Northwest has been able to serve tens of thousands of men and women by providing jobs, meals, and a whole host of support services. Everything from a full-service vision clinic donated by Walman Optical to kitchen upgrades funded by Boeing to millions of dollars donated by Celebrity Waiters Luncheon’s annual event have made Uplift Northwest a place of hope and opportunity for those in need. While there are too many partners to list, here’s what several of them had to say:

Celebrity Waiters Luncheon is an annual fundraiser that has partnered with Uplift Northwest for years. I think the mission is great because they provide people with a hand up instead of a handout by teaching job skills and helping them find employment.”


Board President, Celebrity Waiters Luncheon

We hire Uplift Northwest workers for event staffing at UW Huskies games, and it’s been a great experience. It’s a convenient way to hire workers, and I’m looking forward to many more years to come. Years ago, Uplift Northwest helped me and my family when we arrived in America as refugees, and it feels good to be able to now give back.”

Vice President, International Parking Management

We need to provide opportunities for people to build better lives. We want to help people who have been struggling to have steady employment and the satisfaction of a job well done, and to improve neighborhood quality of life for everyone. [King County’s partnership with Uplift Northwest in White Center clean-up] is a pilot, and I hope that it will provide lessons that can be deployed throughout unincorporated King County, and beyond.”

Dow Constantine

Executive, King County

Every single bit of support makes a difference, and we thank you all sincerely for making this a stronger, healthier community. There is much work to be done yet, and with your help, we are confident we can help people thrive.

How You Can Become a Partner

Uplift Northwest is a privately funded nonprofit organization that relies on the Puget Sound community to keep its mission going strong. Whether you are an individual, corporation, grant provider, or service provider, we want to build something beautiful together. Every day, your support and contributions change lives. You break down barriers to employment and help people to gain stability in their lives.

We recognize that escaping poverty and homelessness is a difficult and complex task. There doesn’t seem to be one magic answer to help everyone, so we would love to hear how you would like to contribute to our continuum of services. Maybe you would like to volunteer your time for things like resume building and interviewing skills. Perhaps your corporation would like to support a capital project to improve our one-of-a-kind facilities. Or maybe you’d like to help grow our referral network for human services in the Puget Sound Region.

We are stronger together, and with each other’s help, we can lift up our fellow community members to a place of prosperity. To learn more, please contact us.
