Giving USA and the New Age of Philanthropy in the Pacific Northwest

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 | 9:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m.PT (90 mins)

A new age of philanthropy is upon us. Alford Group will present the recently-released Giving USA report looking back at 2019 giving, which will inform our look forward for the Pacific Northwest region. A panel of local experts will then speak to how the regional philanthropic landscape has and will continue to change since COVID-19. We will discuss how we are being called to do better to bridge the inequities and system failures clearly revealed in this global health and financial crisis, and work to create economic dignity and improve the quality of life for all.
