Our Membership Diversity Commitment
In order to ensure that PYP Seattle’s membership represents the vast diversity of King County and the breadth of communities that we aim to serve, we intend to consider only women of color for membership for the next three years. To learn more about this commitment and our other diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, click here.
Upcoming Events And Reminders For Current Members
We’ve reserved the perfect spot to get together in person to formally welcome our 2021 new members as well as the 2020 new members (whom we still haven’t been able to welcome in person). 2020 and 2021 new members, their mentors and the members recruited our new members are all invited to attend and should RSVP in the Evite they received.
PYP Seattle members interested in becoming Grant Champions must submit PYP Grant Request Form
Spare 30 minutes of your time to support ELAP! Join virtually for ELAP’s signature annual event, Breakfast for Justice. You’ll be united with more than 500 attorneys, judges, elected officials, and community members who believe that everyone deserves access to legal help. Registration is free.
Join us as we kick off the 2021 grant cycle. We’ll meet our new members, reconnect with returning members, and we’ll get a chance to meet our 2021 Grant Champions and hear a little about the nonprofits they’ll be pitching to us this year. An Evite will be sent with additional event details – please RSVP on the Evite.
This is the only required PYP event. Please make every effort to be there. You won’t want to miss it!
The Pitched Nonprofit Exploration Period is a time for members to follow up and learn more about the nonprofits pitched to us. Our Grant Champions will plan opportunities to get to know the nonprofits and you will receive Evites to each event — please RSVP to the Evites.
You’ll have two days to anonymously cast your online vote to help us decide how to allocate our 2021 grant pool. A link to the ballot will be emailed to you when voting opens on 11/22.
After all of our work is done, we’ll present our grant recipients with their checks and party the night away! Significant others invited.
Video – 2020 Grant Cycle Recap
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!
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.
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.
