Philanthropy Northwest is a network of philanthropists, philanthropies and philanthropy-serving organizations working in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
The application process for the next cohort began in January 2019. See Currently Hiring below for positions that we are actively recruiting now.
The Fellowship is designed to prepare professionals from underrepresented communities, particularly communities of color, for successful careers in the philanthropic sector through professional development, networking and mentoring opportunities. Foundations currently participating in our second fellowship cohort include: The Collins Foundation, Empire Health Foundation, Marguerite Casey Foundation, Meyer Memorial Trust, Rasmuson Foundation, Whatcom Community Foundation and Women's Foundation of Oregon. Candidates should come from a community that is currently underrepresented in philanthropy, such as a community of color, LGBTQ, disability or other group. Fellows’ levels of professional experience may vary — please see individual job descriptions for eligibility requirements. Preference will be given to past or present residents of the Pacific Northwest, with a willingness to commit to service in the region.

Jan Jaffe and Mark Sedway, The Giving Practice | How do you feel about strategy? Most philanthropy practitioners we work with feel ambivalent at best. For most of us, signing up to do strategic planning is about as energizing as arranging to get your teeth cleaned. It has the oppressive quality of someone doing something to you rather than being in charge of your own health, especially when you bring evidence of poor self-care to the appointment. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In the same way that flossing and brushing your teeth will make that appointment less painful, we’ve seen how foundations that treat their strategy not as a discrete planning process but as ongoing practice, and use bite-size activities to make the experience manageable and fun, come out the other side with their strategy gleaming and in good health. more »
Kim Sogge, Momentum Fellow | I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest — and have no plans to leave anytime soon, either! And now I'm excited to be part of Pride Foundation, a community foundation I have supported for many years, through Philanthropy Northwest's Momentum Fellowship. I am immersed daily in the impactful, strategic investments that Pride Foundation makes in the LGBT community in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. I have been able to participate in our annual grantmaking review and discussions, attend plays as a part of our partnership with Intiman Theatre, and read stories that gave me goosebumps from our courageous community members across the region who simply want to live openly and safely in their home communities. I also attended Local Matters: Washington, Philanthropy Northwest's statewide convening, with my colleagues earlier this week in Bellingham. more »
We're excited to share with your our latest report, "Vision and Voice: The Role of Leadership and Dialogue in Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion." Produced in partnership with the D5 Coalition and the Seattle University Nonprofit Leadership Program, "Vision and Voice" is the product of a year-long process of research and dialogue with northwest foundation leaders about issues of diversity, equity and inclusion in philanthropy. It includes findings from interviews with 23 regional foundation leaders and an in-depth exploration of a unique peer cohort we facilitated, consisting of 10 leaders who met on an ongoing basis to discuss and support each other in advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in their organizations. more »
