On Monday, July 25, seven EPIP'ers joined 45 other local and national funders (including guests from the Northwest Area Foundation in Minnesota) and activists for the Potlatch Fund's annual funders' tour to three distinctly different tribal communities - and to witness the final landing of the InterTribal Canoe Journey at Swinomish.

Though past funders tours have been blessed with wonderful weather, we traveled through thunder and lightening to reach our destination - only to have the sun pop out just as we were boarding our bus for the return trip to Seattle.
Below is a recap of our journey, courtesy of the Potlatch Fund:
EPIP members Heather Miller (Potlatch Fund), Dorothy Longbrake (The Longbrake Family Foundation), Sarah Studer (EPIP Board of Advisors and Seattle co-chair), Katrin Wilde (The Channel Foundation) and Zeke Spier (EPIP Board of Advisors and Social Justice Fund NW) embrace the rain and enjoy the day!
