Whatcom Community Foundation’s Board Match program is designed to encourage new leaders from the community to learn more about what it means to be a successful board member, and to connect them with opportunities to engage in board service with an organization that is important to them. Board Match is currently on hold, along with all in-person gatherings, until it is safe to bring groups together. To be added to the list of potential participants, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Whatcom Community Foundation Youth Philanthropy Program (YPP) has been created for students to engage in knowledge and experiential based learning opportunities that foster leadership, technical and critical thinking skills. YPP connects youth to the community through charitable giving in relation to local, environmental needs. Students will focus their time and effort on powerful impact of grant award making, educating the community about the YPP program, learning leadership skills, and bringing in new members for 2024.
