Our mission is to engage women in philanthropy and to collectively fund grants to charitable initiatives that serve this region. The goal is to identify unmet needs in the community and provide grants to nonprofits for impactful change in King County. We are committed to promoting volunteerism by exposing our Membership to many local worthwhile charities. We help our Members become more educated and informed about philanthropic choices and meet like-minded women who share their interests.

Let’s help make this year’s Thanksgiving holiday bountiful for families in need in King County. The Northshore YMCA, Hunger Initiatives organization would love our help filling Holiday Baskets with non-perishable food and grocery store gift cards. Please bring your family out to help fill the baskets. The basket items are donated by local companies and the First Lutheran Church is donating the space for us to work. If you would like to bring food and/or grocery store gift cards to contribute, the donations are very welcome. Or, just bring yourself and your best helpers! Please RSVP in the Evite.
After all of our work is done, we’ll present our grant recipients with their BIG checks and party the night away! Significant others invited. Cocktail Attire. Evite to come!
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.
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.
