Committee for Children Donates $45K to Nonprofits Supporting Children’s Education and Well-Being

Treehouse, Seattle Alliance of Black Educators, and School’s Out Washington Receive $15K Gifts

SEATTLE—April 1, 2022—Committee for Children, a global nonprofit leader in social-emotional learning and development, has donated $45,000 to three nonprofit organizations working in service of children’s education and well-being in the state of Washington.


Treehouse works across Washington to advance equity and racial justice in the foster care and education systems. The $15,000 donation from Committee for Children will support the statewide expansion of their programs and help support resources that young people experiencing foster care can rely on through their teens and early twenties, through foster care placement changes, high school completion, post-secondary education, career exploration and attainment, and all of the other unique challenges young people with foster care experience navigate on their path to independence.

Seattle Alliance of Black School Educators

The Seattle Alliance of Black School Educators is a coalition of educators from diverse fields dedicated to providing a higher level of academic achievement, creative growth and development, and cultural heritage knowledge. The $15,000 donation from Committee for Children will be used for their 2022 Scholarship Award Program, supporting Black students who reside in the Greater Seattle areas to attend college.

School’s Out Washington

School’s Out Washington works to ensure equitable access to high-quality, expanded learning programs in all Washington communities—especially for low-income youth and youth of color. The $15,000 donation from Committee for Children will help fuel their work to build up the expanded learning field across Washington through culturally responsive professional development, advocacy, and grant-making, focusing on historically under-resourced communities across the state.

“We’re so proud to support the important work of Treehouse, Seattle Alliance of Black School Educators, and School’s Out Washington,” said CEO of Committee for Children, Andrea Lovanhill. “Each of these organizations are helping children and their communities thrive. Their work is crucial to supporting children, families, and educators.”
