PSPCF's founding entity, PSPinc, began in 1987 and has thrived by providing digital tools and solutions for businesses. Because of its deep ties to Japan, PSPinc was moved to respond and help in the aftermath of the devastating 2011 earthquake and tsunami. During the course of creating and running the Summer Experience in Seattle program, PSPCF was established and achieved 501(c)(3) status in September 2012.


PSP Children’s Foundation (PSPCF) was formed in 2012 to provide programs and opportunities for young people who have experienced exceptional hardships.


In 2012 and 2013, PSPCF hosted the "Summer Experience in Seattle" program for children who were affected by the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. Together with the support of local communities and businesses, PSPCF and PSPinc brought 16 children and 4 teachers from Minami Sanriku-cho and Kesennuma, Miyagi, two of the hardest hit areas by the tsunami, to visit Seattle for 2 weeks. This program granted opportunities to see a country and culture outside of their own, and provided educational experiences through participating in classes and activities. The Summer Experience in Seattle program also provided enriching experiences for all who participated in the endeavor. Those that benefited included the program's volunteers, the host families, and others in our community who had the opportunity to meet these children and be touched by their stories.


In 2018, PSPCF hosted its second charity golf tournament at the beautiful Aldarra Golf course in Washington. With generous donations from PSPinc and all of our sponsors and players, PSPCF was able to gift 5 scholarships for the 2018-2019 Academi Year. These 5 scholarships were given to help financially disadvantaged students achieve their educational and career goals. In 2019, PSPCF helped 5 more students for the 2019-2020 academic year. PSPCF took pride in helping our future entrepreneurs by providing scholarships to UW's Foster School of Business students.


Through PSPCF, PSPinc continues to provide assistance and opportunities for a better future to young people who have persevered in the face of adversity.



PSP Children's Foundation believes that children from all walks of life should have opportunities to enhance their future, even if their circumstance puts them at a disadvantage. We want to offer hope and give opportunities to these extraordinary young people, so they have the means to do great things in our communities and become the next great leaders of tomorrow. After all, hope is something we receive by giving it to others.
