The June & Julian Foss Foundation June and Julian Foss, 1936
Julian and June Foss, 1936

The June & Julian Foss Foundation was established in 1997. It is comprised of the descendants of June & Julian Foss and their immediate families. The Philosophy of the Foundation is based on love of family, respect for diversity, intolerance of bigotry, and generosity of self. We consider society’s most important strength to be that of families, and we define family broadly. We value integrity, self-reliance, self-esteem, and spirituality, and we consider a sense of humor to be an important attribute. We intend to support programs and projects, especially those directed to children and youth, that promote these values and that encourage an entrepreneurial spirit and a sense of curiosity and wonder.

We accept grant applications from agencies that provide services in Seattle and Tacoma, Washington; Portland, Oregon; the San Francisco Bay Area; and in Miami, Florida.
