Max Higbee Center is in the final stages of its Capital Campaign!

Thank you to our growing network of supporters

and hundreds of individual and corporate donors

In 2018, Max Higbee Center began fundraising for a larger facility to eliminate its growing waiting list for services. The community responded with overwhelming support for this important project and construction started in February 2020 to fully remodel 1400 N. State Street in downtown Bellingham. This facility will triple the Center’s size, improve access with close proximity to the bus station (one block away!), and improve services with a functional, accessible, and welcoming space that will meet the needs and dreams of participants and programs.

Now, Max Higbee Center is in its final fundraising push to raise the funds needed to complete construction and open its doors in a time when social services are vital to the health and well-being of individuals and our community. Contribute today to help us build a community where everyone belongs and receives support to lead a full and meaningful life.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this vision and project thus far!
