Strengthening Philanthropy

Strengthening Philanthropy

We’re helping foundations like yours succeed in your work.

Through our workshops, events, publications and networking opportunities, we support you to build skills and stay connected to the issues that affect your community. We offer tools tailored to all types of philanthropy across the Northwest, along with specific regional support in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming, plus Hawai'i.

The Giving Practice

We are home to The Giving Practice, a national consultancy committed to joyful, effective and equitable philanthropy. Their mission is ours: advancing knowledge and action in philanthropy. The Giving Practice team does this by supporting philanthropy organizations like yours to discover your possibilities, live your values and achieve your goals.

Networks That Connect

We know that philanthropies face similar challenges based on size, geography and populations served. Our networks connect you to communities of peers so you can share information, learn together and take action. These networks include: Community Foundations, Corporate Philanthropy, Alaska Funders, Health and Education Funders, Pierce County Funders and more.

Our member network is as diverse as our six-state region. Our members span a wide range of issues, grantmaking practices, sizes and scope. Collectively, our members represent nearly 50 percent of regional philanthropic assets.
