Bob & Mary Ann Wiley: 2018 Outstanding Philanthropists

The winners of this year’s Outstanding Philanthropists embody what generosity means in all forms. Bob and Mary Ann Wiley gave of their time and treasure to sustain and grow the missions for which they were most passionate.

The Wiley’s commitment to nonprofits in the Puget Sound dates back to the 1960s, when they moved to the area with their toddlers in tow. Their interests were varied. and included supporting many organizations in our community, such as the Arboretum, Burke Museum, Camp Fire Central Puget Sound, Chief Seattle Council of the Boy Scouts (Mary Ann was one of the first female members), Pacific Science Center, Planned Parenthood, Seattle Rotary, Seattle Senior Rights Assistance, United Way and Women’s University Club. They were also active advocates for the Death with Dignity Initiative in Washington, volunteering with the failed initiative in 1991 and the successful initiative in 2008.

"In losing Mary Ann, Bob found renewed strength and purpose in realizing their shared commitment to giving back many times over. Rather than giving through their will as originally planned, Bob has been able to realize dreams that he and Mary Ann only talked about – major investments in the Burke, Planned Parenthood and the Pacific Science Center. His giving of time and resources in recent years has brought clear joy and purpose to Bob and kept Mary Ann's spirit, spunk, and generosity alive."

– Julie Stein, Executive Director, Burke Museum
