Northwest Fundraising was founded to provide a simple, well organized method of raising large amounts of money with minimum volunteer requirements.
Our company was started in June of 1993 to better serve the needs of schools and parent organizations in the Pacific Northwest. From humble beginnings, we now occupy our own building in Enumclaw, WA with over 10,000 square feet of office/warehouse/freezer space to accommodate our customers with unmatched customer service and delivery response. Our full-time staff of customer service, office, warehouse, and sales personnel are always ready to assist you with the special needs of your fundraising program.
Our philosophy is simple…we wish to simplify the fundraising process for our customers while offering creative and positive ideas to increase the organizations’ profits from each event in which we are involved.
Through customer-friendly sales and service and top quality products, we serve both our client customers and end-user customers to their complete satisfaction.
By providing non-competitive award and recognition programs, our goal is to increase participation in your fundraising event. We recognize that parents, students and teachers are invested in the process and outcome of your project.

Meet the Sales Team
I have been involved in the fundraising industry for over 15 years. My passion is building relationships with schools and helping them reach their fundraising goals. It has been a real blessing the friendships that have been formed because of my job, sometimes it is hard to believe it is work!! I am a true Washingtonian, born and raised in Bellevue and I now call Lake Tapps home. My daughter is currently studying law at Gonzaga University School of Law, so I spend many weekends traveling to Spokane to visit and spend time with her. Outside of work, I enjoy working in my yard and painting furniture. It is not uncommon to see me covered in paint splatters on the weekend!
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!
Meet the Office Team
I have been part of the Northwest Fundraising family for 17 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 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!
