CityClub Seattle: Philanthropy Forward

Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street. $12-$30.

Civics, Community

An earlier CityClub forum called “Building a Culture of Philanthropy” examined the foundations of philanthropy in Seattle over the last 50 years. Now, a panel featuring Kristen Eddings, co-founder of Agency, an initiative of the Washington Global Health Alliance; Nadia Eleza Khawaja, co-founder and CEO of Jolkana; Paul Shoemaker, Executive Connector of Social Venture Partners Seattle; and Brian Arbogast, a founding board member of Progress Alliance of Washington, explores the trends and leaders who are redefining philanthropy by targeting engagement as well as giving.  How do today’s philanthropists cross borders between local and global giving? How do they use digital tools to democratize participation and communications? How are priorities decided? The discussion, moderated by Philanthropy Northwest CEO Carol Lewis, follows this important conversation from the wisdom of the past to today’s best practices and tomorrow’s possibilities. Presented by CityClub.
Advance tickets are $20-$30 including lunch/$12-$18 for coffee and dessert only, at https://www.seattlecityclub.org or 206/682-7395. Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street.

    I would like to suggest that Seattle City Club should talk to a young and vibrant young man that is Director of Development for the Social Justice Orgainization in Seattle. His name is Estevan Munoz-Howard. I am sure it would be a very positive association for both.
