Strengthening communities by connecting nonprofits

Starts on Wednesday, April 13!

The Central Washington Conference for the Greater Good is the annual gathering of nonprofit and philanthropic people from across the region.

Each year we shape the Conference around what our nonprofits need now. After conversations with colleagues across the region, we have designed a “deconstructed” conference in which the threads of this annual event will be delivered separately, with opportunities to weave together ideas and actions in both regional and peer gatherings online and in person.
