What We Believe
We believe shared practice informs best practice.
Despite the inherently competitive nature of philanthropy, developing shared practice among the Washington, DC metropolitan area fundraising community is the absolute best way we cultivate philanthropy. By facilitating cross-sector learning, we are creating a regional fundraising community that advances big ideas.
We believe in the power of diversity and inclusion.
The diverse causes, sectors and affinity groups reflected in our membership are among our greatest assets. Creating opportunities for individuals with common areas of interest yet diverse backgrounds to convene and network is one of the most valuable benefits we offer our members.
We believe the ability to adapt is key to our success.
As philanthropy evolves, so too must our approach to fundraising. We know we cannot simply do what we have done in years past and expect to achieve the same results; new challenges must be met with innovative solutions. We help our members respond to the latest trends in philanthropy, leverage new technological advancements and target new and emerging markets.
