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.

Bring Grantmaking with an Equity Lens to your Organization

Is your foundation eager to increase equity in your grantmaking practices? Does your grant committee need additional skills and tools to help them apply an equity lens to your grantmaking? If so, consider bringing our Grantmaking with an Equity Lens staff workshop to your organization.
