LEGACY OF STIM BULLIT AND THE SEATTLE PARKS FOUNDATION HELPS TO FUND THE JIMI HENDRIX PARK FOUNDATION

March 12, 2014 - Seattle, WA — Last week, Seattle Parks Foundation awarded $160,000 to support the vision, dedication, and generosity of community volunteers, philanthropic partners, and public agencies working together to connect our city through great public space. Thanks to the extraordinary legacy of Stim Bullitt, the Foundation has been able to provide $500,000 to nine community-led public space projects over the past year.

The Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation was amongst the four recipients of the legacy awards offered through Stim Bullitt's contributions to the Seattle Park Foundation, for which we are very grateful.

Spreading out behind the Northwest African American Museum and providing a connection along the I-90 Trail, Jimi Hendrix Park will honor the iconic musician and be activated as a site for community gatherings and concerts.

Plans for Jimi Hendrix Park Continue to
Garner Broad Support

SEATTLE, WA (February 27, 2013) — The Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation (JHPF) recently announced impressive gains in fundraising for development of Seattle's Jimi Hendrix Park, located adjacent to the Northwest African American Museum in the City's Central District.

Recent donations to the park include an award of $100,000 from the Department of Neighborhoods, Neighborhood Matching Fund (Large Projects) for general construction; $79,040.47 from JHPF's partnership with Hard Rock International for the sale of Jimi Hendrix T-shirts (bringing Hard Rock's total contribution in 2012 to $425,734); $40,970 from King Conservation District to fund the park's rain gardens; and $10,000 each from the Nisqually Indian Tribes and Fender Music Instruments Company, for general construction. Project Manager Maisha Barnett expressed her gratitude for the community's enthusiastic support of the Park: "We are so thankful for the on-going contributions made by both our institutional partners as well as our individual supporters. Their commitment will enable us to turn the dream of Jimi Hendrix Park into reality."

Throughout 2012 JHPF pursued a capital fund-raising campaign to finance construction of the park that will celebrate the extraordinary life and musical legacy of Seattle's native son, Jimi Hendrix. The non-profit foundation, with the assistance of the Friends of Jimi Hendrix Park, a volunteer community group committed to developing the space, aims to raise $1.5 million in private funding to supplement a $500,000 Seattle Parks Levy Opportunity Fund Grant. The park plan envisions a space that will motivate youth and others to explore music and art, and strengthen the cultural pulse of the Emerald City as a focal point for multi-cultural events, gatherings and activities for the community.

The Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation and capital campaign is spearheaded by Janie L. Hendrix, who also serves as President/CEO of Seattle-based Experience Hendrix L.L.C., and Carver Gayton, Executive Director Emeritus of the Northwest African American Museum.

Despite its recent successes, the Foundation has not yet reached its fund-raising goal of $1.5 million in private donations and continues to seek community assistance in its efforts. Contributions to the foundation are tax deductible. For more information, or to support the cause, visit www.jimihendrixparkfoundation.org. At the core of the Park project is the belief — embodied best by Jimi Hendrix himself — that with talent, hard work and passion, anything is possible.
