Summit Overview

Each year, philanthropic leaders from around our region come together for the South Sound Philanthropy Summit, hosted by two volunteer-led organizations, AFP South Sound (AFPSS) and South Sound Planned Giving Council (SSPGC), with the goal of bringing together development professionals, allied professionals and philanthropists for a day of education and networking.

We come together to learn, share and grow as a community. Together, we do more, go farther, are more strategic, make a more profound and lasting impact. At the Philanthropy Summit, we “unite to unleash the power of philanthropy.”

More information about the 2019 program will be released as it becomes available. Stay tuned at this web page or sign up for the AFP South Sound e-newsletter
