Medina Foundation is a family foundation that works to foster positive change in the Greater Puget Sound area.
In honoring the vision of our founder, Norton Clapp, the Medina Foundation aspires to improve lives by granting primarily general operating funding to human service organizations that provide direct support to Puget Sound residents.
Today, the family continues Norton Clapp's legacy by funding innovative organizations that approach tough problems with new ideas and solutions, as well as proven programs that have been meeting the needs of the community for many years.
We know that deep racial inequities exist in every area that Medina funds. We are committed to our own learning and to supporting our nonprofit partners that provide critical services and work tirelessly to dismantle systemic racism. We also know that people who are most affected by an issue are often the ones who can best see solutions, so we strive to fund organizations that share that belief.
