charitable contributions mission
Charitable Contributions Fund provides the opportunity for a sustainable and healthy community for all. The Tulalip Tribes strives to work together with the community to give benefits back to others to help build a stronger neighborhood. That's why, in Tulalip, it is traditional to “raise our hands” to applaud and give thanks to those who have given to us. We “raise our hands” to the numerous organizations in our region that contribute to our communities.
We Are Tulalip
The Tulalip Tribes are federally recognized successors in interest to the Snohomish, Snoqualmie, Skykomish and other allied tribes and bands signatory to the Treaty of Point Elliott.
The 22,000 acre Tulalip Indian Reservation is located north of Everett and the Snohomish River, and west of Marysville, Washington. The Tribes maintain an aggressive environmental preservation program, both on and off of the Reservation.
The Quil Ceda Village of the Tulalip Tribes donates funds to the local community as approved by the Tulalip Tribes Board of Directors. Qualifying programs may only be funded once each calendar year to help improve arts and culture, education and youth, social services, public services and the environment.
The Tulalip Tribes Charitable Contribution Funds program has assisted over 245 charitable organizations with over 50 million dollars since 1993 working in partnership with the surrounding communities including Marysville, Everett and Snohomish County to make a positive difference. Many of these programs are documented here including the six featured charitable organizations on this page. Tulalip Cares is pleased to demonstrate the past efforts and looks forward to receiving and funding qualifying proposals for benefiting the community in the future.
