Connecting the passion of philanthropists 
with the missions of Northwest nonprofits


As one of the largest AFP chapters in the world, Advancement Northwest is transforming the relationship between donors and fundraisers, building a more vital culture of philanthropy and stronger communities for us all. We believe the fundraising profession must rise to meet the highest standards of innovation and find creative solutions to help philanthropists make an even bigger impact in advancing the ever-growing needs that nonprofit organizations serve.

Our 2015 Winter Conference drew more than 450 fundraising and nonprofit professionals for an amazing day of training and networking. Thanks to our fantastic keynote speaker — Tony Mestres, President & CEO of The Seattle Foundation — and lunchtime speaker Andrew Watt — President & CEO of AFP International. Kudos to our insightful slate of presenters, our sponsors and exhibitors, and the many volunteers who made our first conference as Advancement Northwest such a success. We are already busy planning for our next big event.

SAVE THE DATE for our 2015 Spring Conference: June 11 at the Lynnwood Convention Center.
