Welcome to the Stewardship Foundation

The Stewardship Foundation is a family foundation in Tacoma, Washington with roots dating back to 1947.  We enjoy a rich legacy of Christian faith-based philanthropy, one based upon service to others. From local engagements to international strategies, the Stewardship Foundation shares our resources with the hope to alleviate suffering, to improve the lives of those on the margins, and to be an instrument of God’s healing and peace in our world.

Grantee Spotlight

Eastside Academy

Eastside Academy believes that every youth deserves the opportunity to write their own story. The story that God desires for them: One with hopes, dreams, and a bright future. EA is a Christian alternative high school that has been serving youth since 2002. Our model is intentionally small with an enrollment cap of 50 students so that we can provide hands-on support and relationship to some of the most marginalized teens in our area; those who suffer from homelessness, abuse, addiction, mental health challenges, and learning difficulties and more. Students are offered comprehensive services as part of their typical high school day. This includes, academic support, mental health counseling, addiction recovery, long-term housing (for those in need of safety and stability outside of school), mentor relationships, and spiritual guidance. Our students are writing the next chapter of their lives and Eastside Academy is helping them turn the page. Please visit www.eastsideacademy.org for more information.
