Empowering Individuals: The Promise of the Nonprofit Sector

When individuals are stronger, the groups around them are stronger. When individuals have the opportunity to thrive, communities flourish.

We believe the promise of the nonprofit sector is its ability to change lives for the better, and we see this take place every day through our grantees and the myriad nonprofits across our region. Every day, millions of residents in the Pacific Northwest work and volunteer with tens of thousands of nonprofits that seek to provide services and support to individuals in need. Through service, mentorship, education and collaboration, they help improve the lives of countless individuals.

This video explores just a small sample of stories of how nonprofit organizations have helped individuals work through a personal challenge and pursue a thriving life. Their inspiring stories leave us in awe, and we are grateful to the organizations and individuals who participated in this project to share their experiences in order to help others.
