Thanks for making Philanthropology a SUCCESS!

Many thanks to our attendees, panelists, facilitator and sponsors for making Seattle's first EPIP Philanthropology(c) workshop such a success!

We were thrilled to have had 22 different organizations in total represented at the workshop- even a representative from an organization in Idaho!

Many many thanks to the following people:
  • Kalpana Krishnamurthy, our fantastic facilitator, for leading us through the day,
  • Rusty Stahl & Sophia Silao, EPIP's Executive Director and Associate Director for flying across the country to join us,
  • Eleanore Garton, Senior Researcher at the Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy at Brandeis University, for documenting and evaluating the day,
  • Steven Rathgeb Smith, Director, Nancy Bell Evans Professor of Public Affairs, University of Washington, for welcoming our group,
  • Anne Xuan Clark, Charles Fields, Audrey Haberman, Ken Gordon, and Scot Nakagawa, our panelists who shared their insights on the field of philanthropy and offered their advice on how to be successful,
  • Our sponsors- the Quixote Foundation, EPIP, and the Nancy Bell Evans Center on Non-Profits and Philanthropy
Below are snapshots from the day. We hope you will join the Seattle EPIP chapter for our next event- a Spring Fling happy hour on May 21st!

Panelists share their personal stories of how they got into the philanthropic field. Most cited luck!

Participants evaluate their own foundations on a Agree/Disagree scale across the room.

Staff members at community foundations discuss how their organizations incorporate social justice values into their workplace.
