Dear South Sound Partners for Philanthropy Members,

Welcome "back" after what we trust was a refreshing and relaxing summer season. We are looking forward to seeing you at our first meeting, on September 11, at 8:30 am. Partners meetings are usually the first Wednesday of each month, but due to back-to-school considerations we scheduled our first fall meeting for thesecond Wednesday.

Membership newsletters will now be sent monthly, and will include information about upcoming South Sound Partners meetings and events, news from membership organizations, and regional job postings.

If your organization has an event to advertise, please submit the online form for the online event calendar. Accompanying event graphics can be emailed to info@celebrategiving.org (jpeg and png format only). The calendar is a very useful resource when planning and scheduling events, to avoid overlap! Job announcements and other news can be emailed to info@celebrategiving.org. Please include the job title, description, and link for additional information. 

Thank you for your membership in South Sound Partners for Philanthropy, and we will see you on September 11!
