What’s Happening

  • Executive Director Laura Pierce hits the road to hear what you need to succeed Your mission matters. Your success matters. That is why Washington Nonprofits is kicking off our 2017-18 strategic planning with a tour of Washington— including online events— to create the space in which you can tell us what you need to succeed. We value your input and will use it, in combination with the input from other Listening Tour events, to set our strategic direction and our advocacy agenda.
