Several months have passed since a catastrophic mudslide devastated the Oso, Arlington and Darrington communities in Washington State. As new needs emerge in the wake of this natural disaster, so does the opportunity for new learning and reflection within our philanthropic community. Join us to hear from a panel of women with deep expertise in philanthropy and local issues to discuss: institutional and individual philanthropic responses to disasters, lessons learned from Oso, and the existing challenges in rebuilding this community.

The panelists for this event are:

  • Barbara Davis, Vice President, United Way of Snohomish County 
  • Karri Matau, Vice President, Greater Everett Community Foundation
  • Moderator: Kristen Holway, Partner, The Giving Practice at Philanthropy Northwest

Washington Women's Foundation is pleased to present this program in partnership with Philanthropy Northwest, Social Venture Partners, The Seattle Foundation, and The Nancy Bell Evans Center on Philanthropy at the University of Washington Evans School of Public Affairs, as a continuation of the Reflections on Philanthropy event series.

There is no charge to attend this event. Coffee and snacks will be served.
