About the Foundation

The Governor’s Mansion Foundation is an all-volunteer, non-profit and non-partisan organization founded in 1972 to furnish and maintain the public areas of the Washington State Governor’s Mansion.

Our all-volunteer Foundation works proudly to enhance and maintain our collection of furnishings and art in the public rooms of the Washington State Governor’s Mansion. Our nonprofit, non-partisan, non-political organization has been in existence since 1972, having been founded by former Washington State First Lady, Nancy Evans.
