Julia Pritt (July 9, 1932 – April 3, 2010)
Julia Pritt was a Seattle area philanthropist and co-founder of Attachmate, one of the most successful privately held software companies in the history of Washington State.

Julia Started her early philanthropic activities by volunteering her time in Plano and Seattle with organizations like YES (Youth Eastside Services) and then, after retirement, started her own non-profit, WWIN (Washington Women in Need). Since 1990 the organization’s full time staff has provided over $10 million in financial aid to more than 4000 low income women with a focus unique to women needs.

Among the extraordinary gifts Julia founded Julia’s Place (a homeless family shelter in the Madrona neighborhood) and Washington Women in Need and donated land for a beautiful Issaquah park. The Julia Pritt House, a shelter for homeless in Issaquah, was named in her honor.

Even though Julia was a very accomplished business woman and philanthropist, her true passion was her family.

Her generosity and her heart guided everything she did and today the Julia Love Pritt Foundation is continuing its commitment to women, homelessness, and impact the health and wellness with at risk kids by helping them lead a more active lifestyle through physical education and youth sports experiences.
