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.

Is the state of our country's democracy on your mind?

Check out our Democracy Lens project that helps grantmakers identify ways to create a more vibrant democracy in their states and communities. The Democracy Lens includes both data and case studies, known as Bright Spots, that can help funders find ways to support community-led solutions to address societal problems, as well as work collaboratively across the charitable and public sectors. Data and multiple Bright Spots are available for each state in our region.
