Thank you to everyone who attended the Pacific Northwest’s most intensive and comprehensive training event for nonprofit fundraisers.


The Forum was made possible by the dedication of many volunteers from our community. If you see one of them at a future Advancement Northwest event or around town, please thank them for helping create a strong fundraising community. 

Co-Chairs: Libby Singer and B. Michelle Johnson
Volunteer Committee: Lisa Bury, Hong Chhuor, Jeanne Galloway, Catherine Merlo, Madeline Mulloy, Shannon Sherman, Erin Tierney, and Rob Wiseman.

Whether you are new to fundraising or an experienced major gift officer; a board member or chief development officer; a communications manager or executive director—the Forum on Strategic Fundraising can help you grow your fundraising acumen! If you missed this year's event sign up for our E-newsletters so you can receive information about next year's event and other exciting training opportunities.

Couldn't make it to the Forum this year? Considering donating to Advancement Northwest instead.
