As a regional network, Philanthropy Northwest has always supported peer-to-peer learning. Our members have asked for more opportunities to continue conversations beyond conferences, member briefings or meetings they attend, and they have often shared additional resources that might assist other funders. Therefore, Philanthropy Northwest is developing new tools and platforms so that we can share our collective knowledge, continue to learn together and find ways to better listen to the communities we support and so deeply value.
We are excited to launch a new series called Listening & Learning as a vehicle for sharing the knowledge created in our region. The initial two topics in our series will focus on (1) relationships between Northwest funders and Native communities and (2) on building civic capacity and community.
Philanthropy Northwest will draw on the work of our members and regional partners, as well as recent and ongoing convenings of grantmakers. We will present best practices, trends and continuing questions. These materials will grow over the next several months and we hope that you will reach out to us with your stories, participate in upcoming interviews, and use the materials available here.
