Event description

Description

Each year, philanthropic leaders from around our region come together for the South Sound Philanthropy Summit, hosted by two volunteer-led organizations, Association of Fundraising Professionals South Sound and South Sound Planned Giving Council, with the goal of bringing together nonprofits, development professionals, allied professionals, funders and philanthropists for a day of education and networking.

We come together to learn, share and grow as a community. Together, we do more, go farther, are more strategic, make a more profound and lasting impact. At the Philanthropy Summit, we “unite to unleash the power of philanthropy.” >> View 2019 Video

RENOWNED KEYNOTES include:

  • Michael Moody, Ph.D., Frey Foundation Chair for Family Philanthropy, Cultural Sociologist & Author, 21/64: Generation Impact: How Next Gen Donors Are Revolutionizing Giving. Michael will offer specific ideas and implications for working closely with your next gen, providing best practices and highly practical takeaways for engaging and supporting next gen donors as they figure out their philanthropic roles and prepare to launch their own giving efforts. Learn how the next gen learn best, and who or what influences the development of their values and interest in—and approaches to—philanthropy. Learn from groundbreaking research on the most relevant themes, data, quotes, and findings.

  • Kristen Corning Bedford, President & Founder, philanthroBE: A Generous Heart: How Feminist Philanthropy is Changing the Culture of Giving. The field of philanthropy has been evolving from acts of doing for to doing with, but large systems of power remain intact. Doing philanthropy differently means examining our own privilege and power in order to dismantle systems of oppression that traditional philanthropy upholds. Using feminist principles of solidarity, reciprocity and agency provide us with a lens to change how and why we give. This new wave of giving is taking hold with both new and seasoned philanthropists, encouraging us to question the systems themselves and commit to a more profound relationship with our “love for humanity.”

  • Victoria Woodards, Mayor, City of Tacoma, will join us as a very special Lunch Speaker.
