Trends in Northwest Giving began as a project of Philanthropy Northwest in 2002 and has been published every two years as an aggregation and analysis of grantmaking trends that shape our region — Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming. The Trends in Northwest Giving 2019 report focuses on the most recent data available, through fiscal year 2016, and includes a combination of information from our membership network, Form 990s and intermediaries.

In an area with great natural beauty and land resources like the Pacific Northwest, it’s important to preserve the landscapes that make it special. That’s the idea behind the Pacific Northwest Resilient Landscapes Initiative, a new partnership between the Idaho Community Foundation, Oregon Community Foundation, Seattle Foundation and the Land Trust Alliance. The initiative is launched with the support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and will permanently protect thousands of acres of natural lands in Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

Commitment to place is a core value at Philanthropy Northwest and to community foundations. Honoring place means that we acknowledge both the bright spots and the difficult truths of the places in our region that many of us call home. We do not want to shy away from this complexity, but rather make the most of this opportunity. We will be in Boise for PNW18 at a time of unprecedented growth and diversity.

The effects of natural and manmade disasters have become more frequent, far-reaching and widespread. As a result, preserving the safety, security and prosperity of all parts of our society is becoming more challenging. Our nation’s traditional approach to managing the risks associated with these disasters relies heavily on the government. However, today’s changing reality is affecting all levels of government in their efforts to improve our resilience while grappling with the limitations of their capabilities. Even in small- and medium-sized disasters, which the government is generally effective at managing, significant access and service gaps still exist. In large-scale disasters or catastrophes, government resources and capabilities can be overwhelmed. In this call, Mike Riedy and Matt Cedar will provide an overview of the four phases of emergency management, differences between community recovery and individual recovery and suggest ways to support the long-term recovery group process, including why financial contributions are best.

Preliminary results from this month's 24-hour giving days in Idaho, Montana and Washington report that donors gave more than $21.4 million to a range of nonprofits across our region. The current estimate falls below last year's May giving day totals — which raised about $25.4 million for nonprofits in Idaho, Montana and Washington, despite a national website crash that delayed and discouraged donors — but above the $19 million raised in 2015. Final numbers won't be available for a few more weeks, as organizers confirm payments, matching funds and other complex calculations.
