Giving that Creates Meaningful Impact

GTCF’s Philanthropy Team provides unique strategic advising and personalized philanthropic services to Fund Advisors, nonprofits, and professional advisors to increase philanthropic impact.

Individuals & Families

“I think we saw as a family it is time to grow into something larger that will go on for many generations.”

-Mike Nist, Seattle-Tacoma Box Company, Nist Family Fund

Nonprofits & Agencies

“Rather than going through a bank, we felt Greater Tacoma Community Foundation was the solid community partner we needed. Their partnership extends throughout Pierce County, like ours does.

-Dean Carrell, Foundation Director, Pierce County Library

Professional Advisors

“I want everyone who is doing life and estate planning with a philanthropic focus to know what a great resource GTCF is. The way I see it, the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation is the cog at the center of so much good happening in Pierce County.”

Beverly B. Cox, Certified Financial Planner, Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy, GTCF Board Member, GTCF Professional Advisor Committee Member

Aligned Philanthropy

When we launched PIERCE COUNTY CONNECTED, our funding committee said we are stronger together. As Pierce County rebuilds, my hope is that networks across Pierce County continue to join one another in times of crisis and opportunity. We are truly stronger together. 

-Dona Ponepinto, President and CEO, United Way, Co-Chair, PIERCE COUNTY CONNECTED Fund Committee
