For over 20 years, The Russell Family Foundation partnered with local organizations that protect and restore the waters of Puget Sound and contribute to long-term environmental sustainability and positive social impacts for our estuary and communities in our region.
As of January 2022, given internal changes, TRFF has sunset the Jane’s Fund and Puget Sound grantmaking programs.

Partnerships and Collaboration

We supported a mix of strategies to protect our estuary and its communities including public engagement, education, advocacy, strengthening regulations and policy change.
