Who's Coming to the Washington Community Foundations Convening

Who's Coming to the Washington Community Foundations Convening

Gloris Estrella, Program Manager

Philanthropy Northwest coordinates a network of community foundations in Washington state, including our annual Washington Community Foundation Convening, bringing together the leadership of community foundations and other place-based investors across our region.

This is my second year working with this network, with generous support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and this year's convening will be better than ever! Our gathering at the Sleeping Lady Resort in Leavenworth has a great lineup of speakers, facilitators and confirmed participants.  

The Giving Practice's Mark Sedway led a session at last year's Washington Community Foundations Convening.
