Immigration: What’s at Stake for Families and Implications for Washington State Funders

May 23, 2017,
1:00pm to 3:00pm
PDT
Seattle, WA and Online

Immigrant and refugee children and families across Washington state — both newcomers and longtime residents —are afraid and are experiencing the direct impact of new federal immigration policies. This has created a domino effect as nonprofits are facing skyrocketing calls for assistance and services. With an expansion of detention, deportation and priorities for enforcement, limits on refugee admissions, attempts to create a travel ban, and more, the stakes have never been higher for Washington communities. Organizations throughout the state have been working on rapid responses with a diverse range of stakeholders in the face of critical needs in the community. Philanthropy is at a critical juncture as it considers the impact on communities it supports and funding strategies moving forward.

Culturally Competent Leadership in Philanthropy

January 27, 2016,
9:00am to 12:30pm
PST
Seattle

As we grow as a nation, we are learning to become multicultural in a way where we benefit from our differences, rather than expecting people to assimilate into the dominant culture's norms, values and customs. Please join Philanthropy Northwest, Pangea Giving and Cultures Connecting for a skills-building workshop that explores frameworks for (a) building culturally competent work environments and (b) collectively addressing systemic barriers in order to advance equity through philanthropy. This event is sold out.
