About the Foundation
The Cathedral Foundation for the Diocese of Olympia (formerly the Saint Mark's Cathedral Foundation) was founded in September 1995 as an independently governed, tax exempt organization. Its sole purpose is to support the future of the Cathedral by receiving, raising, and managing capital and endowment funds for the Cathedralís buildings and grounds. In January 2011, the Foundation became affiliated with the Bishopís Office of the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia.
The Foundation is governed by a Board composed of 15 elected or appointed members, and two ex officio members (the Bishop or his representative and the Dean of Saint Mark's). Elected and appointed Board members may be parishioners of Saint Markís Cathedral, members of other Episcopal parishes, or from the greater Seattle community. They serve three-year terms, and are eligible for re-election or re-appointment for a second term, for a maximum of six consecutive years. Officers are elected for one-year terms. Board meetings are open to the public and normally held bi-monthly at Diocesan House. Please contact the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org for upcoming dates.
