Potlatch Fund was formed in 2002 and is a Native-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit and leadership development organization. Among Northwest Coast tribes, a potlatch is a ceremony of celebration, sharing, and giving. Potlatch Fund honors these traditional values and is dedicated to inspiring the Native tradition of giving by expanding philanthropy within Tribal Nations and communities in the Northwest. The Annual Gala is Potlatch Fund’s major fundraising event and brings together people from many different tribes, organizations, corporations, and communities.

The 2019 Fundraising Gala includes the following. 

  » Pre- and post-dinner networking receptions
  » Native art silent auction
  » Dinner celebrating traditional and local foods
  » Cultural performances

The Fundraising Gala provides the opportunity to share culture through song and dance performances, to support and celebrate Native art and artists, and to assist Potlatch Fund with its fundraising efforts as it continues to undertake important work throughout Northwest Indian Country.

Join us at the Little Creek Casino Resort – Saturday, November 2 – and help us celebrate 17 years of success! Funds raised on the evening will be used to sustain the organization’s operations.

In Coast Salish tradition, we raise our hands to you in thanks and appreciation for your support of Potlatch Fund!
