Many missions.
One community.
United for change.

Through shared learning, networking and action, we connect Northwest philanthropies of all types.

We’re building more resilient, equitable and inclusive communities through our work in three areas:

Strengthening Philanthropy

To increase philanthropy’s impact, we deliver trainings and tools that build knowledge and skills, and we bring organizations together to share ideas and best practices.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Together with our national consulting arm, The Giving Practice, we offer diversity, equity and inclusion programs and resources to support living these values and creating opportunity for all.

Policy and Advocacy

We engage on policy issues that matter to philanthropy and to communities, like ensuring every person is counted in the 2020 Census, and we empower members to become more effective advocates.

PNW on the Road!

The Philanthropy Northwest team is hitting the road in 2023 for an ultimate philanthropy road trip to visit our friends and colleagues in person throughout our region. This is an opportunity to hear from you, but also do what our network does best – gather in community, deepen learning and build connections.

We have also decided to pause our annual conference for 2023 and are taking this year to reflect, listen to your feedback, expand our creativity and build the best experiences to meet your needs. Looking for more opportunities to engage with the network? Stay in the know about our events by subscribing to the FOMO Antidote!
