Seattle Lunchtime Program & Annual Meeting

Is Change Possible in the Funding World?
An Honest Discussion

Thursday, January 17, 2019
11:30 AM to 12 PM - Registration, Special Treats & Networking

12 to 1:30 PM - Program

Members: Free!
Non-members: $15

It’s 2019 and we’re looking for a reboot of the nonprofit-funder relationship! Blogger and nonprofit changemaker Vu Le and Seattle Foundation President & CEO Tony Mestres promise the conversation will be candid, lively (and possibly even irreverent at times) when they join us to discuss:

  • Why we keep having the same conversations over and over again
  • The frustrations of funding in the nonprofit world
  • The pitfalls of power dynamics
  • Why there aren’t more general operating grants
  • Passive aggressive competition versus cooperation
  • What YOU can do in 2019 to be a changemaker!

And so much more - because we have a lot to talk about. Find out how we can have the hard conversations and partner in the year ahead to increase investment in the social justice and equity-driven initiatives that strengthen our communities.

This program will also include the 2019 PSGA Annual Membership meeting and presentation of the 2018 PSGA Goodwin Deacon Star Award. 

There will be delicious holiday treats, both naughty and nice, so come early to network with peers.
