The Goodman Foundation Funds Organizations That Support Children and Their Families

Goodman Foundation Beneficiaries

American Red Cross

The American Red Cross, a humanitarian organization led by volunteers, provides relief to victims of disasters and help people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies.

The Goodman Foundation provided $100,000 in matching funds toward the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts and encouraged other donors to support relief efforts in the Gulf Region. The result was over $1 million to American Red Cross.

Still, an unprecedented number of children and families are suffering and homeless due to the Hurricane Katrina disaster. Please consider donating to the American Red Cross, which continues to supply hundreds of thousands of survivors with critical necessities in the Gulf Region, and other areas of the country affected by disaster.

Big Brother Big Sisters of King and Pierce Counties

Big Brothers Big Sisters of King & Pierce Counties (BBBSKPC) partners with actively involved community members to match caring adults with children, both of whom benefit from our one-to-one mentoring programs.

The Goodman Foundation provided matching funds at their 40th Annual Dinner and Auction Gala to encourage other donors to support BBBSKPC.

Bishop Blanchet High School

Blanchet High School was established by the Archdiocese of Seattle to provide Catholic education for high school students. Blanchet’s goals are to:

• Provide an excellent academic education with attention to the development of the whole person
• Develop Christian leadership for the Church and for society
• Uphold the dignity and freedoms of all peoples
• Promote personal responsibilities and active service to the wider community
• Support the family, church and society in the education of youth

The Goodman Foundation made a grant towards development of educational programs at this Seattle institution.

Boys & Girls Club of King County

The Boys and Girls Club of King County’s mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. With 12 full-service clubs, and 28 before- and after-school program sites, the organization is one of the largest of its kind in the nation, serving 18,000+ members annually.

• The Goodman Foundation provided matching funds at the 30th annual KidsAuction to encourage other donors to support the Boys and Girls Clubs’ good work.

• The Goodman Foundation provided another grant to match funds raised by the kids at Boys & Girls Clubs of King County. This money will be used to rebuild Boys & Girls Clubs in the Gulf Region following the devastating 2005 hurricanes.

Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center, Seattle

Children's Hospital is the premier pediatric referral center for the Pacific Northwest and is recognized as one of the top children's hospitals in the nation. The caring staff and physicians at Children’s believe that all children have unique needs and should grow up without illness or injury.

The Goodman Foundation provided matching funds to Children's Hospital Guild Association at the Season of Light Auction to encourage other donors to support their efforts in the Pacific Northwest.

Magnolia Baseball Club

The Magnolia Baseball Club (MBC) was founded by Seattle Mariner’s pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife Karen. The goal of the Magnolia Baseball club is to develop young men using the game of baseball as a tool for preparation in the areas of teamwork and life. The commitment from the coaches, players and parents to the team they are involved with is much more than just playing a baseball game. Respect, loyalty, ethics, sportsmanship, and commitment make up the Magnolia Baseball Club.

The Goodman Foundation made a grant to sponsor the Magnolia Baseball club in their efforts to bring baseball back to this Seattle neighborhood.

Santa Clara de Asis Catholic Church

The Goodman Foundation provided a grant for the continued upkeep, services and educational programs at this parish in Southern California.

The Moyer Foundation

The Moyer Foundation offers encouragement, comfort and support to children and families enduring a time of profound emotional, physical or financial distress and provides opportunities for enhancing overall wellness, stability and quality of life.

The Goodman Foundation provided a grant toward the “NASCAR Dream” for the foundation’s first Dream Catchers event. A simultaneous, three city event, the Dream Catchers auction provided once in a lifetime experiences that cannot be found or purchased anywhere. The proceeds from the event are being used to fund bereavement camps for grieving children.
