Founded in 2000, South Sound Partners for Philanthropy is a consortium of more than 40 South Sound nonprofit organizations dedicated to promoting philanthropic efforts in Thurston, Mason, Lewis, Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties. The goal of the group is to work collaboratively to increase the awareness of local needs and the vital role that giving locally plays in the success and health of our community.
Residents of Olympia, Tumwater, Lacey, and rural Thurston County typically donate millions of dollars to local non-profit organizations that support the arts, health and human services, education, the environment, youth programs, senior services and much more. A recent community assessment reported more than half of Thurston County residents volunteer and more than two-thirds contribute financially to charities.
South Sound Partners provides regular education and training sessions to both members and the community at large so new and innovative ideas are brought to the forefront. In addition, education is provided to donors regarding planned giving and estate planning.
