We help our Members become more educated and informed about philanthropic choices and meet like-minded women who share their interests.
Upcoming Events And Reminders For Current Members
Summer Search Seattle’s annual Luncheon is their biggest event of the year! It is an opportunity to hear from students, mingle with the community, and to share the powerful impact of the Summer Search program with your peers. 2017 PYP Grant Champion, Robyn Hsu, is on the Luncheon Committee and would love to see us fill a table again this year!
Bring your families to work at an urban park in Seattle. We’ll be working with City Fruit, netting fruit trees that supply fruit to local food banks, neighbor campaigns, and more.
The “Style” Fashion Fundraiser is Northwest Hope and Healing’s biggest event of the year, benefitting local women who are undergoing treatment for breast and gynecologic cancer. Tickets are $250 each. Let’s fill a table together!
I feel more connected to Seattle’s local charities (or at least more knowledgeable). It was really inspiring to hear how passionate our PYP members are about the charities they support. I also loved the opportunity to get to know a few more women, and hope to connect with even more of the group in the future.
I feel like I have less and less time, and PYP is a great way to combine being with talented, interesting, like-minded people, and also doing something great for a charity in our community. Combining funds really allows our members to make a big impact on a local organization. I am honored to be part of this group!
PYP Seattle is a great way to get more involved in the community in a variety of ways – as a financial contributor to a program/organization in need: as a neighbor getting to know others in the area in deeper and more meaningful ways; and as a woman banding together with other strong, successful women to really make a difference.
