Thank You for Celebrating Washington Philanthropists for 25 Years!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 25th Anniversary of National Philanthropy Day held on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the The Westin in downtown Seattle. 

National Philanthropy Day is celebrated each year to recognize the individuals and organizations in Washington State that volunteer their service to: 

  • Enhance the quality of life in our state

  • Build community

  • Reach out to others to ensure a brighter and more promising future for all citizens

  • Address social needs that are an integral part of American society

  • Make the world a better place
