What Does "Local" Mean for You?

It means we can do a better job.

 

What does it mean to us? That we're here, in the state of Washington, at the foot of Mt Rainier in Enumclaw.

 

It means we are your neighbor.

 

It means our kids, grand kids, nieces and nephews have gone to many of our clients schools and organizations.

 

It means a first name basis when you call us.

 

It means our entire team is right here handling all aspects of your fundraiser.

 

From Arlene, our packet prep extraordinaire, to Joel, our divine delivery driver, we're engaging groups and organizations with impactful fundraising and community engagement that allows them to better navigate their world.

 

We love working with schools, but we're here to support sports teams, choirs, theater groups, dance clubs and anything in-between.

 

Together we create a bigger impact in our local neighborhoods by giving back to our beautiful state.  Check out our partnership with Conservation Northwest this year and our continued commitment to Northwest Harvest!

 

With Northwest Fundraising, you can confidently put on a fundraiser that actually works, without sifting through a million “that looks cool,” ideas, and a billion “they might work” fundraising companies.

 

We work, we only offer fundraising programs that reflect our expertise, and we are with you from consultation to delivery and beyond.

 

Northwest Fundraising is one of the strongest, most trusted local fundraising companies in Washington State. We take pride in being the ONLY local fundraising company that handles every aspect of your fundraiser in house.

Our Story

Northwest Fundraising was founded to provide a simple, well organized method of raising large amounts of money with minimum volunteer requirements.

 

Our company started in June of 1993 to better serve the fundraising needs of schools and organizations in the Pacific Northwest.

 

Our foundation started with this philosophy: simplify the fundraising process for our customers with simple, profitable, and proven fundraising programs while offering creative and positive ideas to increase an organization’s participation.

A Word From Our New Owner...

 

"After working for Northwest Fundraising for 21 years, last year I bought the company.  Fortunately, working with and learning from David for so many years helped this very natural transition. I’m still here, ready to help, laugh, assist, and listen.  If I have yet to meet you, I look forward to what we can gain from each other.  I sincerely believe in this company and what we can do together to make a positive impact on each other, our communities, and most importantly our children’s lives." - Mary Chess

I have been part of the Northwest Fundraising family for 21 years. I truly enjoy my job and the people I get to deal with. When I’m not here at the office, you will usually find me in the garden or the kitchen. I’m always up for a good recipe swap!

I have been involved in school fundraising in the Northwest since 1984 and I apply my experience to every project!

My children attended schools in both Bellevue and White River school districts and I currently have grandchildren in the Tahoma, Seattle, and Lake Oswego school districts.

In my spare time, you might find me playing a little folk rock with one of the guitars, mandolins or ukuleles that I’ve collected over the years or, if it’s a nice day, on the golf course!

I was introduced to NWFR as a PTA president when our school used the company for a fall catalog sale.

When my kids grew up, I contacted Mary to see if she needed any help around the office as I live in Enumclaw. That was almost 4 years ago. I love a good book!
