I attended Philanthro's most recent event, Stupid Cupid: the silent date auction. After interacting with a few volunteers, I was drawn to the organization. Learning more about it, I found it to be such a successfully organized, well-oiled machine. The volunteers make sure to have fun while doing their work, and due to them serving on a volunteer-basis, they are willfully sacrificing time and efforts for this organization.

To be honest, I was a little intimidated and surprised by everyone's dedication to the organization, but for me, that was a green flag. If the volunteers truly love their work and don't mind their sacrifice, then Philanthro must be doing something right.

Right now, I'm in the process of learning more about Philanthro in hope of becoming a volunteer!

I was first introduced to Philanthro via the San Francisco Chapter and immediately thought their ideas on how to introduce and connect young adults with philanthropy was ingenious. I just knew it could work in Seattle as well. It wasn't long after that when I received a message from the former co-President of the SF Chapter informing me that a Seattle Chapter was in the works. I jumped at the chance to become involved with this group of motivated and intelligent individuals with the hopes of helping out the local community and its non-profit organizations through volunteering and events. I also enjoy the transparency of Philanthro and most importantly, the creativity and ability to cultivate and nurture new ways to connect to our audience. I know where Philanthro stood when started out on this venture, and I am excited to see where we take it, as one.

I work for a private foundation and have been a philanthropy professional for more than 8 years. I learned of Philanthro through a friend who sent me a Facebook invitation to one of the events. I attended Philanthro's events and was completely blown away by the quality, the organization, the awareness they raised for the charity, and the energy. I looked for a friend connection on Facebook to learn more about Philanthro. After learning more, I just had to join and be a part of the Philanthro movement. Philanthro re-energized me on the power and possibilities of philanthropy.

Philanthro is creating the template for the future of philanthropy. It's not just writing a check or attending an event. Philanthro creates a connection platform for young professionals to meet each other and give back to to the community by using their talents, networks, and energy.

I have been recently in contact with the members of Philanthro Seattle. My business will help support their mission in every way that it can. The people with Philanthro are so amazing and easy to work with. I can't wait for our future engagements!

Being a part of Philanthro has allowed me to fulfill my desire to inspire others to make philanthropy a part of their lives. Coming together with a group of 20 likeminded young professionals every week and working on building a platform to help non profits connect with young professionals has given me a renewed sense of purpose and helped me grow as an individual.

Everything from volunteering directly with non-profits to planning how to best reach out and encourage others to join us has been an amazing experience.

I was always involved in volunteering one way or another as a youth, in high school groups or in church groups. As an adult in a busy world of work and life, volunteering has fallen down on my list. Then Philanthro came along and now I see myself trying to better myself and the world around me in nearly everything I do! Philanthro, thanks so much for the inspiration to live a better life and to encourage so many other young professionals to get active in their communities again!

I've always known that there are those less fortunate than me out there. I've always wanted to make a difference some day. I've always seemed to find ways to put off that someday. And I believe that many of my peers out there can identify with those statements.

Being a young professional, I was once guilty of wanting to contribute to positive changes in my community but never acting on it. Being involved with Philanthro Seattle has been the first real, tangible step I've taken in giving back to the world around me. Ultimately, this in itself reflects back on Philanthro's culture of doing, not talking.

And we do a lot. As a 100% volunteer based organization, officers and staff spend 10+ additional hours a week (on top of jobs, relationships etc) to put together events that bring awareness to causes, profit for charities, and excitement and inspiration towards living a philanthropic lifestyle.

Philanthro has filled that void in my life that left me feeling a bit unfulfilled. This organization has provided me with an opportunity to not only engage my community, but to do it with talented friends and peers who share similar beliefs. It has been an amazing journey so far and I have nothing but high hopes and expectations that great things will come out of this relationship. Young professionals alike could all use a little nudge, and I believe that Philanthro can be that force.

Philanthro throws extremely well-organized and fun events with extraordinarily good looking people!

They help out charities that provide innovative solutions to communities and are also transparent and efficient.

Great way to connect to worthy causes and network with quality young professionals.
