Giving Back

Acupuncture Northwest & Associates' Community Involvement

Acupuncture Northwest & Associates is rooted in the community and can often be found giving back.

What's Going On Now


Every year at the holidays, Acupuncture Northwest & Associates comes together with YouthCare to help homeless youth get what they need and hopefully a few things they want as well!

This year they have gone virtual and posted their wish lists on Amazon. Click on the link below and please donate what you can to help homeless youth thrive!

YouthCare Holiday Wish List

The Tubman Center for Health & Freedom

November 23, 2020: Acupuncture Northwest & Associates joined the Equal Justice Initiative to fund a Jason Lee Middle School remote learning book club. Seems like a very worthy cause to us.

"My students rarely see themselves in printed material. With complete online learning, this collection will motivate students to engage in learning. I am starting a reading club tackling social justice topics and these books will be the focus of our discussions."  Mrs. Baughman 

East West Food Rescue

July 21, 2020. Today we add another charity to our list of ongoing monthly donations that we make as an organization. We have chosen the East West Food Rescue. Born during the Covid-19 pandemic, this organization pays farmers for their crops in Eastern Washington and then gives them to food banks in Western Washington. What a genius idea! Thank you. May we all have farmers next year...

Helping train the next generation of acupuncturists and physicians:

Bastyr University

We are proud to be a Bastyr University preceptor site. Many acupuncture and naturopathic students have studied at our clinic over the years because of our high quality fertility acupuncture and effective acupuncture for pain. Matt Ferguson also teaches at Bastyr and has been faculty there for over a decade.

We also open our doors to resident physicians to do an elective rotation in our clinics. It's wonderful to be able to share our medicine with the allopathic medicine community.

Giving back to the community:

We also believe in giving back. Acupuncture Northwest & Associates sponsors many non-profit organizations every year. From having a YouthCare Giving Tree to collect gifts for homeless youth to supporting the Rainbow Center Gayla in Tacoma to sponsoring RESOLVE infertility support groups in Seattle, we are making a difference in our communities.
