Results: Philanthropy Northwest

Writing/Framing Challenge: Stimulate new conversation and new thinking about “resilience” as it relates to nonprofits and grantmaking,through a provocative pre-conference article for attendees and presenters at the annual Philanthropy Northwest Conference . . . in two pages or less.

“The thought-paper, Resilience Here and Now: How?” worked very well at the PNW conference, both on the web site and in the registration folders. People read it, referred to it, quoted it; and presenters related it to the audiences. I heard it quoted and used it myself, so thank you very much for all of your effort and patience! It made my job as conference co-chair much more relevant and easier to perform, because it offered a thread to the theme to which this crowd resonated well”.
