Change is constant and our communities continue to experience daily change that impacts the Pacific Northwest resident’s education, safety, aging-experience, health, housing, and overall quality of life. As we continue to adjust around how life and philanthropy has changed as a result of the pandemic — embracing each others mechanisms, ideals and collaborations have found to be imperative to navigating this Zoom-centered world. Combining what we knew with what we can imagine allows for transformative new systems around change that continues to bring philanthropy together.
Embracing Change recognizes that the philanthropy continues to partner with community in equitable ways to counteract systemic barriers and prevent lack of access to funding for nonprofit/grassroots organizations and community leaders. Together, we will share stories from the field that lift up strategies around advocacy and impact-investing that will continue to make a difference currently and into the future of philanthropy. Embracing Change believes there is beauty within the balance of change. We invite you all to take this journey with us as we also highlight how philanthropy within our region has taken bold and innovative steps in its forward philanthropy-centered thinking.
