We appreciate our relationships with local businesses for sponsorship and alignment with our mission. Corporate philanthropy plays an integral role in the strategy of many Spokane companies because customers and employees alike tend to transact positively with organizations that join our cause.
Media partnerships are collaborations that are can help us to raise the visibility of our cause. These partners are an essential part of our strategy, providing us with space to promote our mission, our grants, and our event. We extend our deepest gratitude for our media partnerships that have helped us in the past few months.
To Our Many Generous Supporters
The work of The Foundation depends on the commitment and generosity of private philanthropy. We gratefully want to acknowledge the individuals, corporations, and foundations who continue to help make The Foundation work possible. Our volunteers, donors, and partners are helping to fund children’s charities that provide marginalized kids with a safe place to call home, a family that loves them, a feeling of community, and opportunities to learn, build self-esteem, and have fun.

We are thrilled to spotlight one of our generous donors, John Powers III. As the son of one of our board members and a successful commercial real estate agent at NAI Black, John is a shining example of someone who uses their success to give back to their community.
John believes in creating opportunities through hard work and research and utilizes his confidence and abilities to develop a strong network of satisfied customers and clients. Before joining NAI Black, he worked for several Seattle and Puget Sound-based companies where he specialized in retail leasing and restaurant business, including a commercial real estate company he co-founded in Bellevue, WA. At that company, he was the Marketing Manager and Director of restaurant sales. He was responsible for taking the company from a small office start-up to being recognized as one of Washington's industry leaders in restaurant sales. Despite his impressive professional accomplishments, what truly sets John apart is his big heart and commitment to making a difference in the lives of others.
We are grateful for John's support and generosity. He is a shining example of how we can all make a difference in the world by using our talents and resources to support causes close to our hearts. Thank you, John, for being a part of the Believe in Me family and for your commitment to creating a brighter future for marginalized youth.
Julia Parmann was more than just a volunteer; she was a vibrant and passionate person who left a lasting impact on those around her. As a Believe in Me volunteer, we were very saddened to learn that she passed away shortly after our 2022 golf tournament, but her legacy lives on through her work with the Blazen Divaz. She deeply loved parades and had been involved in them since she was a child. She continued to work on choreography and details of the Coeur d’Alene Downtown Association's Lighting Ceremony Parade until the day she passed away.
