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.
The Summit in 2021 will again be hosted in a virtual Town Hall setting over a half day program.
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.
Over the next 10 years, $48.6 billion will transfer between generations – $482 billion over the next 50 years. This provides an opportunity for transformative philanthropic investments into our community through estate gifts. Greater Tacoma Community Foundation’s 2020 “Transfer of Wealth Study” sets the stage for the Leave 10 South Sound Initiative. Join us for an overview on the Transfer of Wealth Data and its implication for your organization, an introduction to the Leave 10 South Sound Initiative and an opportunity to discuss in small affinity groups, how you could use the tools in the Leave 10 Tool Kit to advance your organization’s planned giving program. Professional Advisors will also obtain resources to help them advance their conversations with clients regarding charitable estate planning.
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, and what trends they see for the South Sound area.
The 2021 South Sound Philanthropy Summit brings together 150-plus professionals representing all aspects of the philanthropic community, including fundraising, financial, legal, accounting, estate planning and nonprofits. The conference will provide immediately useable tactics for fundraising professionals as well sound theory for those guiding nonprofit organizations such as board members or executive directors.
