This week, we had the pleasure of sponsoring and attending National Philanthropy Day celebrations in Portland and Seattle. In both cities, the rooms were filled with fundraisers, philanthropists, and community leaders. Energy was high and there were happy greetings all around. At my table, someone remarked wryly, “Good luck getting all these fundraisers to sit down!”
The good works done by the people and businesses in our community to benefit the nonprofit sector is incredible. If you really want to be inspired, check out the winners of the Youth in Philanthropy awards. They’re going to be running this country some day — and they’ll do it well.
