Cheers to our 2017 Summer Social

We had a fabulous time seeing so many friends and colleagues at our 2017 Summer Social on July 27. Thanks to Pyramid Brewing for hosting us, the awesome volunteers and staff who organized the event, and to all of you who turned out and made it a great evening. Visit our Facebook page to see lots of fun photos.

Building leaders who fundraise 
and inspiring fundraisers who lead 

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.
