Welcome to our new website!

April 7, 2014

If you're reading this, you're among the first people to see Philanthropy Northwest's new website!

We’ve created a dynamic online platform that connects members to information and each other while also communicating philanthropy’s value to the broader nonprofit, philanthropic and policy sector. When you visit, you will discover:

  • Regularly updated news and information
  • Content organized around active networks and shared interests of members
  • Improved usability to search and find resources relevant to your work
  • A fresh, new mobile-friendly design

Our new site's good looks are more than skin-deep. Under the surface, there's a deep integration with our new Salesforce.com CRM database. This lets us seamlessly connect your website user profile to our database for event registration, content personalization and more. We're really excited about our newly-enhanced ability to facilitate member engagement and to respond in real time to your interests and energy.

Get started

We're migrated all existing Philanthropy Northwest website users over to the new site -- your username is now your email address and you can set your password. If our system doesn't recognize your email, it means you're probably not in our database yet and you can create a new account. If you have questions or get stuck, email us at web@philanthropynw.org and we'll get you sorted.

Find great stuff

We have a ton of helpful resources on the site -- and an amazing new search engine to help you quickly find what you're looking for. Take a peek at our Resources section -- you can quickly browse and filter our resources or search by keyword. We'll be adding new material on an ongoing basis -- and if you've got something great to share, we want to hear about it!

Behind the scenes: a unique national partnership

Collaboration is one of our core values here at Philanthropy Northwest -- and this website is no exception. A large portion of its codebase was built as part of a national collaboration among 20+ regional associations, organized by the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers. (Big thanks to the team there, including Val Rozansky and Dan Brady, who have been instrumental in driving this unique collaboration forward and to our friends at ThinkShout, who have done most of the technical heavy lifiting.) Together, we've built a common vision for what makes a great philanthropy association website, benefitted from tremendous peer learning and realized significant cost savings over going it alone.

We hope you find the new website appealing, informative and easy to use. We are eager to hear your feedback, thoughts and questions -- please feel free to share them in the comments below or via email at web@philanthropynw.org.
