Take the Survey!
The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation has asked 501 Commons to develop opportunities for nonprofit leaders in Pierce County to gather for peer-to-peer learning, networking, training, etc.

We are working with a group of advisers that includes: Mary Grant at Camp Fire, Kit Evans at Hilltop Artist, Maralise Hood Quan at Pierce County Center for Dispute Resolution, Roberta at South Sound Outreach, and Krista Linden at Step by Step Family Support Center.

If you are an executive director of a Pierce County organization or an organization that has a major part of its programming in Pierce, we need to know what you want. Please take 5 minutes to fill out this survey.

Would you attend an ED Forum with EDs leading discussions on several topics?

Or are you more likely to attend a training session with an expert speaker?

In Pierce County this Fall
While we are gathering information on through the survey and making plans for later in the year, we are offering this great opportunity for people in Pierce and the South Sound this fall.
