Whidbey Nonprofit Community Slack

The Whidbey Nonprofit Community Slack is an online chatroom provided by the Whidbey Community Foundation. It is intended to be a virtual gathering place for nonprofits and their leadership, staff, and volunteers.

You join different topic “channels” based on your interests (e.g. #fundraising, #volunteers, #finance, #boards, #events, etc). Anyone can share messages, images, links, videos, and more allowing you to connect with and learn from your peers.

Engage with your peers and stakeholders, share information, and brainstorm solutions. You can also have private conversations and channels.

Slack is easy for non-technical users to pick up and can be accessed through the Slack website by downloading the desktop and/or mobile apps.

The following Code of Conduct is written to uphold that commitment.

WCF Slack Code of Conduct

The Whidbey Nonprofit Community Slack is regularly moderated. If you are found in violation of the following guidelines you will be warned and potentially removed from the community.

By joining and using WCF’s Whidbey Nonprofit Community Slack, you agree to the following rules:

  1. Engage in professional and respectful dialogue. This means no harassment or discriminatory, insulting, or vulgar behavior. Harassment includes, but is not limited to; deliberate intimidation, disruption of conversations, personal attacks, insults, or the use of sexual or discriminatory imagery, comments, or jokes. We reserve the right to delete posts that contain any of the above, as well as any posts containing profanity or racial slurs.
  2. Do not share any information posted by others on this platform without the consent of the original poster. We want this space to be one in which everyone feels free to ask questions without fear of judgment. This means not taking screenshots of messages or disseminating information shared in this space with the intent to embarrass or draw attention to a fellow member of the community. It is a space for support and collaboration.
  3. Do not use this platform to sell products, solicit business, or seek donations. This is a community space for nonprofits to engage with one another, not to be a fundraising channel.
  4. Take care of each other. Help make this a vibrant space where knowledge, experience, and resources are shared to support local nonprofit colleagues.
