FISH gets $2,600 grant from Puget Sound Energy
September 23, 2008
Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery recently received $2,600 from the Puget Sound Energy Foundation to support the nonprofit organization’s education and volunteer programs.
Puget Sound Energy has supported FISH with an annual grant for more than a decade and is continuing its support through the foundation, which was established in 2006 with a $15 million endowment from a portion of the sale of InfrastruX Group, a former utility construction services subsidiary. None of the foundation’s funds come from PSE’s utility customers.
“The foundation’s support goes a long way toward helping FISH continue to teach community members about Pacific salmon and watershed stewardship,” said Gestin Suttle, FISH executive director. “Puget Sound Energy, and now the foundation, is a big part of our success.”
