Seattle Chapter

EPIP Seattle was officially recognized in July 2009 as the 10th chapter of EPIP. A small group of young grantmakers recognized the need for the group after an autumn 2005 focus group co-hosted by Philanthropy Northwest and the national EPIP network. The EPIP Seattle Steering Committee works to develop local programming for our members and friends. We survey our members annually to find out what issues they are interested in and build relevant programs based on the results. We host a series of networking and professional development events throughout the year, such as the EPIP National Conference Re-Cap Dinner, our Careers in Philanthropy Lunch Roundtables, and Philanthropology workshops.
