Chamber hosting upcoming annual summit, grant-writing workshop

Chamber hosting upcoming annual summit, grant-writing workshop

The Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce is hosting its annual summit in April, followed by a corresponding grant-writing workshop in May, which are both open to the community.

Each year, the chamber focuses on a business topic or industry segment at an annual summit open to the community. Having budgets, plans for giving and financial reserves in place are markers of health and stability for both business and nonprofits. The 2017 summit will focus on the Business of Nonprofits with a follow-up workshop on grant writing in May. The summit will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., April 19, while the grant-writing workshop is scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon May 24. Both events take place at DaVita, 32275 32nd Ave. S. Federal Way.

The summit’s luncheon keynote will address Corporate Philanthropy: How Giving Works with speaker Joe Lawless, executive director for Leadership and Social Responsibility, Milgard School of Business at UW Tacoma. Susan Ward, of the Seattle communications firm Team Soapbox, will address Branding your Message. What You Don’t Know CAN Hurt You: Fundraising and Protecting Tax Exempt Status is the topic of Bruce J. Lamb J.D., MPA, lawyer, teacher and nonprofit consultant.

The summit also includes a panel, The Power of Volunteers. Speakers are Kristina Sperline, manager of Facilities and Administrative Services, DaVita; Stacy Hicks, volunteer program manager, United Way of Thurston County; and Ingrid Hartsock, community engagement manager. The event concludes with a networking reception.

The grant-writing workshop will have sessions on marketing, leveraging donors and funding resources. Workshop speakers include Jeanette Privat, supervisor, Nonprofit &Philanthropy Center, King County Library System; World Vision on leveraging your existing donors; and authorized Constant Contact expert Rick Hogan.

The nonprofit summit will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., April 19, at DaVita, 32275 32nd Ave. S. Federal Way. The grant-writing workshop will take place from 8 a.m. to noon March 24.

Both the nonprofit summit and the grant-writing workshop are open to the community. Cost for the summit is $75, and the grant-writing workshop is $50. Register for both for a discounted rate of $100 online at federalwaychamber.com.
