OVERVIEW: Nancy Zevenbergen and her husband John move their philanthropy through the Anduin Foundation, which gave away $556,000 in a recent year. The family support religious causes. Other interests include education and cancer research, driven by personal forces.
BACKGROUND: Nancy Zevenbergen graduated with a bachelor’s degree in finance from University of Washington in 1981. She started her career at Rainier National Bank, beginning as a teller and working her way up to research analyst. In 1987, she launched Zevenbergen Capital Investments in Seattle, specializing in aggressive growth-equity investment advisory services for separately managed portfolios and mutual funds.
RELIGIOUS: The couple have directed large sums to North Sound Church of late. Other grantees have included Earl Palmer Ministries and University Presbyterian Church.
EDUCATION & YOUTH: The Zevenbergens support University of Washington Foundation. They’ve also directed funds to Seattle Pacific Foundation, which supports Seattle Pacific University. Nancy is a longtime board member of Seattle Pacific Foundation. Other grantees have included Washington STEM and ZGiRLS, which equips “girls in sports with the tools and perspective they need to be confident, centered, and courageous.” It’s worth noting that Zevenbergen played collegiate basketball and her daughter Hayley was a Yale soccer player.
CANCER RESEARCH: The family direct steady funds to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. John’s father passed away from the disease.
OTHER: The Zevenbergens have also supported places like Cascadia Art Museum. They also appear to make grants in the realm of human services.
LOOKING FORWARD: Expect the family to continue to steadily support their select interests. Women’s equity is another issue to keep an eye on for this funder. Zevenbergen has spoken about these issues before.
