In a time where most professional, social, and technological trends are causing individuals to lead more isolating lives, Foundation works to be a beacon of real community—to bring people together and build lasting relationships around the things we have in common, not the things that make us different.
We believe that at the center of a full life is connection and love.
Connecting with your deepest, most genuine self and practicing self-compassion.
Connecting with your natural curiosities, your true passions, and your impactful purpose.
Connecting with others to build meaningful, supportive relationships, to collaborate and solve real world challenges, and to come together and create true belonging within a caring community.
That is Foundation. That is what we hope to provide for all who call Seattle home.
To cultivate community, human connection, and the individual spirit.
To create a thriving community where Founders inspire, empower, and celebrate each other.
CURIOSITY - Embracing each of our unique curiosities to create a culture of lifelong learners. We celebrate and empower each Founder to pursue whatever naturally inspires their passions and interests.
OPENNESS - Deeply with the self and then having the courage to be vulnerable in front of others—allowing yourself to let go and be honest and open is at the core of being a Founder.
INCLUSIVE PARTICIPATION - The foundation of Foundation is empowerment. We believe that not only are all welcome, but all are necessary, and not just to show up, but to share their voice and perspective.
STEWARDSHIP - We believe in taking full accountability of ourselves, our impact on others, and the world around us. We see ourselves as stewards of all of our ideas, our experiences, and our collective community.
LOVE - The core of it all. Love as a perspective—how we see ourselves, others, everything. Practicing deep compassion and understanding towards our complexities, similarities, and differences of all human experience.
