Many thanks for visiting Donate Seattle, which we hope you will find to be a useful resource.
Donate Seattle aims to make it easier for potential donors in Western Washington to identify nonprofit organizations they might like to support. Often, people have good, useable items they would like to donate, but they are unable to find an organization that has a matching need.
Donate Seattle invites nonprofit organizations to list the items they require. By performing a simple search, potential donors can identify organizations they may like to donate to. It is an additional resource to strengthen the existing nonprofit networks in our Community.
Founded in November 2006, through private funding, Donate Seattle is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, incorporated in the state of Washington.
Who we are: Donate Seattle Board Members
Janet Kormondy Donate Seattle Founder
On arriving in Seattle from the UK in 2003, her volunteer experience with several local nonprofits highlighted the fact that many individuals and businesses were frustrated when they had good, useable items to donate and didn’t know how to connect with those who could use them most. Since launching Donate Seattle in November 2006, Janet has been pleased to welcome Board Members who share her vision, humor and enthusiasm.
Prior to moving to the US, Janet’s career path included podiatry and pharmaceutical sales management. She also enjoyed nonprofit management, predominantly raising funds to support research into Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Allie Kerr Donate Seattle Secretary
With a background in community organizing, political campaign work and primary source research, Allie brings a passion for nonprofits and the gift economy to Donate Seattle. She is delighted by Donate Seattle's pragmatic model, and hopes to help broaden its impact to reach even more nonprofits, and more potential donors. Allie is a Seattle native with a fondness for good books, bad movies, and unusual tea. When she is not donating Seattle, she works as a writer and stiltwalker.
