Friends of Waterfront Seattle is the nonprofit partner to the City of Seattle. Working together, we ensure that waterfront visitors have a great experience in our beautiful park.

As the official philanthropic partner to the waterfront, Friends is able to raise funds to support the park’s construction. To supplement the public’s capital investment, we are raising $110 million over the next five years to help build the park.

Friends is also providing services on the waterfront. We raise money to help operate and maintain the park so it will consistently be safe and clean. We also put on events and activities during every season, so it will to keep it a vibrant, dynamic, and fun place to visit. Check out our Events page for details.

Your help in this work is crucial, and all donations are welcome. If you are considering making a large contribution and would like to know more about how you can best support the comprehensive campaign, please contact our fundraising team.

Friends of Waterfront Seattle and the City of Seattle are developing numerous elegant and fun ways to recognize donors at all levels throughout the future park. Just like the park itself, many of these ideas are still under construction! Friends is actively taking donations in the meantime.

Thank you for your support!
