The idea for this scholarship fundraising event was born out of a desire to help young people who have overcome difficult circumstances. In 2011, when the massive earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, the employees of PSPinc were deeply affected. They raised over $75k in matching funds in the immediate aftermath, with the intent to help children directly impacted by the disaster. PSPinc created the "Experience Summer in Seattle" program which brought groups of Japanese students affected by the disaster to Seattle to experience the Pacific Northwest for two weeks. In the course of creating and running the Experience Summer In Seattle program, PSP Children's Foundation (PSPCF) was formed, achieving 501(c)(3) status on September 13, 2012.
PSPCF's mission is to continue offering aid to young people through unique programs and scholarships, and bring hope for the future.
