Please join us for our Q3 Pierce County Funders meeting.
At this meeting we will hear from Jacques Colon, the 2025 Strategic Manager for the City of Tacoma. Building off of our last meeting where we heard from local experts in the community on key demographic information, Jacques will share out on the strategic vision of what the city of Tacoma is doing around engagement, strategy, implementation of the plan, and how equity plays a strong role in all of this work.
Come and learn about this exciting initiative and see how the role of philanthropy can play a part!
