Giving back to our community has been one of PSRC's guiding principles since its inception. We believe strongly that although the challenges of homelessness, hunger and finding a cure for cancer may seem insurmountable, together we CAN make a difference. We are proud and honored to support the following charities through various fund raising events throughout the year.
PSRC 2020 Educational Scholarship
The Puget Sound Relocation Council, a non-profit organization consisting of a community of relocation and HR professionals committed to education, collaboration and the exchange of ideas. With firm roots in the Pacific Northwest, the PSRCis a diverse organization representing corporate, non-profit and service provider members, who all have a common interest in global mobility. 2020 is an important year, as this is the start of our scholarship program.
The one-time award of $2,500 will be presented to one Western Washington high school senior, graduation in 2020. The award will be sent to the college that the student will be attending to assist with tuition, etc.
The PSRC will select the scholarship winner based on the strength of their total package. The applicants will be evaluated on academic performance, extra-curricular activities, and on their response to a personal essay addressing their relocation to a new area and high school.

PSRC 2019 Charities
Seattle Humane Society - Spring Event
Seattle Humane is the Puget Sound’s leader in animal adoption, education and welfare. Our top priority is to connect animals in need of rescue with the people who will love them. Through our outreach, advocacy, and services we strive to ensure that animal companionship is accessible to all.
Seattle Humane is an open-door shelter with no time limits. That means we accept every animal in need of our help — regardless of age, breed, or health. When pets are brought to us requiring medical attention, our veterinary team works hard to save their lives. If an adopted pet requires training to thrive in his or her new home, we provide it. We strive to give animals the care they deserve for as long as it takes us to find them a loving home.
Northwest Harvest – Fall/Winter Event
The mission of Northwest Harvest is to provide nutritious food to hungry people statewide in a manner that respects their dignity, while fighting to eliminate hunger. Northwest Harvest receives no city, county, state, or federal funding for operating expenses and relies solely on contributions from individuals, businesses, foundations, and other organizations. Much of their work is made possible by volunteers of all ages, who give 66,000 hours of their time each year to feed the hungry.
