Our work depends on people like you offering their time and talent.

Even our volunteer programs were designed by volunteers to offer great opportunities to make a real difference

Events, like Guest Chef Night and our annual fundraising gala, are almost entirely run by dedicated volunteers.

Seattle’s finest business leaders volunteer on Strategic Advisory teams to help guide our most critical work.

Your contribution has a ripple effect

Volunteers take on a lot at FareStart, allowing us to put as many of our resources as possible toward transforming lives. 

Every dollar of revenue from our restaurants, cafes and catered events is rolled back into programs. 

Every hour of service FareStart volunteers provide makes our programs stronger and enriches the FareStart community.

Every grant allows us to build capacity and explore new ways we can make a difference.
