Getting Ready for #GivingTuesday on Dec. 1

Mark your calendars! #GivingTuesday this year will be on Dec. 1, 2015. If your nonprofit wishes to participate in this holiday-themed crowdfunding campaign, we have some helpful tools for you, including a few resources from a recent Giving Tuesday training session hosted by 501 Commons and SeaTech4Good. The presenters came from The Seattle Foundation and Legal Voice.

Our Impact Across the State of Washington

Did you know 501 Commons served 15 counties across the state of Washington in 2014? Or that the Executive Service Corps and VIP Manager Corps donated $1.3 million worth of services to nonprofits? We'd like to thank the funders and donors who made accomplishments like these possible. Find out more about the impact our organization made in the nonprofit sector in 2014.

Springboard Emboldens Arts and Cultural Nonprofits to Flourish

La Sala was founded by a small team of dedicated people whose passion brought the mission to life. After completing the Springboard cohort program earlier this year, the organization - whose mission is to empower the local Latino/Latina arts community - now has both the internal structures in place to succeed and an exciting new funding opportunity.
