We help make Whidbey nonprofits even better

Langley Village in the springWhidbey nonprofits help sustain our beautiful, vibrant Island. But it can be difficult for them to find the time and money to travel to Seattle or beyond for the training and assistance they need to stay up to date on new tactics and trends. In consultation with the organizations we support, the Foundation delivers specialized training that meets the unique needs of small to mid-size rural or small-town nonprofits. We envision helping charitable organizations in everything from executing best practices in financial management to developing a major gift strategy, honing their messages to producing fundraising events, evaluating and improving programs to recruiting board members and volunteers.
