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.”
