 About Us

‚ÄčOur Mission Statement is "To provide support and financial assistance to King County employees and/or their immediate family in times of great need." KCHOPE is self-supporting and funded by employee contributions.

Donations are genuine acts of caring ... by employees ... for employees.

KCHOPE was inspired by a program at the City of Seattle and the State of Washington Department of Transportation.

KCHOPE is a non-profit, 501(3)(c) organization and is self-supporting, fully staffed by volunteers, and funded by contributing employees, individuals and organizations.  

We are able to take donations during the Annual King County Charitable Campaign Drive in the Fall.  To donate to KC HOPE use #9797 as part of King County's Employee Giving Campaign.
