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 (2021-2023).

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!
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.
