Donate to Foundation

In 1997, Stanley O. McNaughton of PEMCO Insurance provided an initial investment to help create the Seattle First Citizen Scholarship Foundation. He did this to acknowledge the work of REALTORS® in establishing the Seattle King County First Citizen Award honoring leadership and community service. Since that beginning, the Foundation has focused on awarding scholarships to young people who display that spirit of community service. The program has grown over the years to offer scholarships to SKCR REALTOR® and Affiliate members, their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
