Seattle Promise is funded by the city of Seattle and Seattle Colleges. The program is jointly managed by the city of Seattle, Seattle Colleges, and Seattle Public Schools. These organizations are supported by Seattle's Levy Oversight Committee.
Funding Today and Beyond
Seattle Promise is funded by the Families, Education, Preschool and Promise levy and private and public partnerships with Seattle Colleges' Foundation. The long-term goal is to create an endowment that would sustain the program when the education levy sunsets after its seven-year term.
