Seattle Times letters to the editor

December 2, 2013 at 7:15 AM

State support is crucial to fund nonprofits

Bravo to King County, Seattle and The Seattle Times

Recent articles about funding cuts in nonprofits reveal again how federal help continues to diminish [“Childhaven’s financial future uncertain,” NWMonday, Nov. 25].

Our country has expended enormous resources on its foreign policy, going all the way back to the Cold War and Vietnam. The result is that it will soon be unable to take care of its own people.

I commend our state, King County and Seattle for coming up with the money, despite shrinking budgets, to help the needy. Bravo to The Seattle Times for its fund drive. It is our wish that Congress will chart another course in how it spends the taxpayer’s money, pick up the banner of humanity, help its own citizens and, to say the least, contribute to nonprofit organizations that help homeless young adults and neglected children.

— Russell Howard, Seattle
