The 9th Annual South Sound Philanthropy Summit
How do we harness this pivotal time? How do we best support our nonprofit organizations in their missions, while feeding our own souls, in what has been a continuous struggle for funding and equity? The 2021 South Sound Philanthropy Summit will continue the discussions from 2020 with national experts in social justice, a South Sound panel, and a workshop style session. The attendees will come away inspired, grounded in local context, and with tactical methods to tackle creating or building upon a planned giving program.
Format: The Summit in 2021 will again be hosted in a virtual Town Hall setting over a half day program.
• Keynotes:
Be inspired by nationally best-selling author of “Decolonizing Wealth”, and a globally-recognized expert on social justice philanthropy, Edgar Villanueva. Edgar will be joined by C’Ardiss “CC” Gardner Gleser. CC also recognized nationally for her work with nonprofits focused on equity and is now based locally in Seattle.
• South Sound Panel:
We are excited to welcome moderator Matt Martinez of the On Being Foundation, George Zeno of Pacific Lutheran University, Maria Kolby-Wolfe of the Washington Women’s Foundation and Elena Pullen-Venema of the Community Foundation of Snohomish County as our wonderful panel.
Our diverse group of South Sound panelists will discuss how their quest for equity and social justice has informed how they fundraise, what trends they see for the South Sound area, and how the Leave 10 initiative works with their goals toward equity-focused planned giving.
• Leave10 Workgroups:
The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation’s “Transfer of Wealth Study for Pierce County,” updated for this year, shows that there is a large portion of wealth that is about to change hands in our region. The Leave 10 initiative asks the question: “What if 10% were left to our communities?” Think of the good that we could accomplish. The Leave 10 Workgroups will discuss the study’s disparity data, as well as the Leave 10 initiative and it’s available toolkit, in small affinity, workshop groups. Prepare to have a well-rounded conversation designed to meet the differing needs of allied professionals and nonprofits.
