Kiran Ahuja | As I approach my one-year anniversary with Philanthropy Northwest next month on June 19, I think about how much I’ve learned and gained from meeting all of you. Three months into my role, we had our annual conference where I met many of you. Here we are again, looking forward to exploring in Boise this October how to listen, partner and lead in the world of philanthropy and beyond. As part of that theme, I’m excited to announce two of our conference keynote speakers (with more to come): Anand Giridharadas and Judy Belk. more »

Kiran Ahuja | Our pledge to place communities “at the center,” and our commitment to equity resonates deeply with me. At Philanthropy Northwest, I’ve felt at home from the start because this organization leads with a values-driven agenda. During my first year as CEO, I immersed myself in the rich and diverse histories and landscapes of our region. I joke with our members that over the past year there have been many firsts for me – first time in Oregon, first time in Idaho, first time in Montana, first time in Alaska, and the list goes on.
