Snoqualmie Tribe donates to nonprofits

The Snoqualmie Tribe donated over $650,000 to nonprofits in the Snoqualmie Valley and around the state on Aug. 6.

The Tribe said it received an unprecedented number of applications for this years donations. Donations will be used for a variety of services, including: veterans services, arts and culture, native services, salmon and environmental protections and the Snoqualmie Valley.

“We are committed to investing in this community and lifting each other up,” Tribal Chairman Robert de los Angeles said. “The Snoqualmie People have always been here and will always be here.”

One of the recipients, Trout Unlimited, received funds for studying the efficacy of non-native aquatic weed control as a salmon conservation effort in Lake Sammamish. Crisis Connections, another recipient, received funding to support its programs, including a teen crisis line. The American Indian Health Commission, Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank and the Issaquah Food Bank were also among the recipients.

“It is vital to the Snoqualmie Tribe that these organizations are supported and able to continue to serve those in need,” Tribal Treasurer Shauna Shipp-Martinez said.

The Tribe said they will begin accepting application for 2022 donations starting Jan. 1, 2022. Applications are due March 31, 2022.

Applications will be accepted for a number of categories, including: salmon habitat restoration, Snoqualmie Valley services, veterans services, native services, family services, senior services, arts and culture and environmental education.

To apply, nonprofits will need to provide proof of nonprofit status, write a letter that outlines their organization’s goals and history and demonstrate how money would be spent.
