Please join fellow Pierce County funders for a facilitated conversation around what Pierce County, as local funders, think is important for external partners to know about their community.
This will be an inward conversation and we will explore questions such as: "What do we want people to know about?", "How are other local philanthropies thinking about their grant making?", and more, to help us get to know each other more deeply and to begin to capture a full picture of what philanthropy looks like in Pierce County.
A more detailed agenda will be posted in the coming weeks.
