Funding Types

We fund capital campaigns with a minimum of 70% raised and equipment projects or purchases that provide for long term sustainability for the organization.  The foundation does not fund program support.  If you are an arts or youth related arts organization in King or Pierce County, please reach out to ArtsFund as the foundation provides support for their grantmaking efforts to serve this geographic areas.  Unfortunately, we do not provide grants to school foundations.

Norman Archibald Charitable Foundation also provides funding opportunities to nonprofit organizations through a Core Support Grant for general operating support. These grants are normally funded annually over an extended period of time. Changes to these organizations are infrequent. In 2019, we provided a total of $125,000 to 13 organizations. Core Support Grants are by invitation only.

Grant Timeline

We accept applications on a rolling basis and applications are reviewed at the quarterly board meetings.
