Celebrate Giving!
Welcome!   
       
 

Founded in 2000, South Sound Partners for Philanthropy (South Sound Partners) is a consortium of more than 40 South Sound non-profit organizations dedicated to the promotion of 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.

Members of South Sound Partners for Philanthropy hold each other accountable to a high standard of fundraising ethics so donors and volunteers in our community know that their time and money is being put to best use. Members collaborate on a variety of projects and communicate regularly to ensure that resources are used effectively and efficiently.

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.
