The Washington News Council has been awarded an $8,000 grant by The Seattle Foundation to help cover operational expenses in 2005. The funds come from TSF’s Community Grantmaking Program.
TSF President/CEO Phyllis J. Campbell announced the grant in a June 17 letter to the News Council: “We are pleased to inform you that our Board of Trustees has authorized a grant of $8,000 to Washington News Council…. On behalf of the Foundation, we wish you every success in your program.”
WNC Executive Director John Hamer said: “We are very pleased to win this generous grant from The Seattle Foundation. We know that competition for these grants is stiff. This proves there is strong and continuing support for the WNC from one of the most highly respected foundations in our community.”
