April 2020 South Sound Lunchtime Program
Wednesday, April 29, 2020, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM PST
Category: South Sound Meetings

Join us to examine some of the top questions and concerns we all share about grantmaking in the time of pandemic.  Panelists from Community Foundation of South Puget Sound and Greater Tacoma Community Foundation will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on their grantmaking. They’ll share with us what they are thinking about as they respond to the impact of the global emergency on our local communities. Topics to discuss:

  • How are foundations helping non-profits continue their work and in some cases rapidly ramp up to deliver needed services to high-risk or impacted populations?
  • What kinds of discussions are they having for what this means both immediately and in the future year to come? 

We are all – foundations included - living through a lot of uncertainty, so we have asked our speakers to help us understand how they are navigating the rough waters of the pandemic’s community and economic impacts.


Mindie Reule, President and CEO of Community Foundation of South Puget Sound.
Janece Levien, M.Ed, Senior Program Officer for Community Impact at Greater Tacoma Community Foundation
