Giving Back to our Community

It's the WMFHA way!

WMFHA is deeply committed to using the strength and passion of our membership to make a positive impact in our communities. The multifamily industry strives to create a spirit of service and giving in our local communities.

Over the years, our Board of Directors and Community Service Committee have sought out and vetted organizations that we can partner with to make a swift and meaningful impact.  Additionally, we provide opportunities for our members to actively engage in giving back.  WMFHA - making a difference in our communities.

About our Charitable Partners

DAWN protects women and children from domestic abuse, providing shelter, support and empowerment so they can build secure and happy lives.

WMFHA has supported the efforts of DAWN since 2006 through our annual Chili Cook-Off Charity Event.  To date we have raised over $146,000 for DAWN.

Since 1909, Childhaven has been a safe and caring place for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. By improving parenting skills and strengthening relationships, our mission is to break the cycle of abuse and neglect and lay the foundation for generations of safe and nurturing families.

WMFHA's Community Service recognized the great work being done by Childhaven and adopted them as one of our charitable partners in 2015.  Since then, we have raised over $95,000 for Childhaven at our annual Holiday Giving Gala.

Rebuilding Together is a leading national nonprofit in safe and healthy housing with more than 40 years of experience. Together, with our members,  Rebuilding Together’s local affiliates and nearly 100,000 volunteers complete about 10,000 rebuild projects nationwide each year.  Since 2015, WMFHA and our members have been able to transform the lives of low-income homeowners by improving the safety and health of their homes.

The mission of Northwest Harvest is leading the fight for hungry people statewide to have access to nutritious food while respecting their dignity and promoting good health. WMFHA share's their vision to ending hunger in Washington.  Through our food donation box program, our member properties have collected over 9,000 pounds of food since 2015.  WMFHA also collects food for Northwest Harvest at each of our Membership Luncheons.

If your property would like to participate - contact our Events Coordinator Tricia Johnson at 425.656.9077.

Move for Hunger is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works with relocation companies to collect non-perishable food items, and deliver it to food banks all across North America. Move for Hunger  works with over 700 relocation companies across 50 states and Canada. We have delivered more than 8,000,000 pounds of food to food banks across United States & Canada.  These food donations account for more than 6,666,600 meals for people in need.

When our residents move out - they often leave non perishable food behind.  In the past - this food was often just thrown out.  This is a perfect opportunity for our industry to step in and partner with Move for Hunger to collect that food and get it to the people who need it! Since beginning our partnership with Move for Hunger in 2017, WMFHA members have collected over 5,000 pounds of food, serving 4,230 meals to the needy!
