ORGANIZATION: Plus One Foundation

Board and Volunteers
Happy Board Meeting Day!

The Plus One Foundation mobilizes resources to inspire hope and enrich the lives of those affected by neurological conditions and educate the community about related issues.

We believe that compassion, dedication, and inspiration of Seattle’s emerging leaders can be a tremendous, positive force in the neurological community. Our vision is a thriving organization of engaged individuals that empower one another to succeed and achieve fulfillment in their lives.

Volunteering with Plus One Foundation helps individuals establish connections in the community and serve as leaders; our nonprofit encourages our board members to discover and build on their talents while sharing their knowledge with other volunteers; the nonprofit also encourages collaboration and creativity within the board to ensure we grow and expand our innovative aspirations. Partnering with Plus One also helps individuals by providing meaningful opportunities for them to accomplish physical and emotional development in their lives.
