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 Northwest Tribal Nations and communities. The Annual Gala is Potlatch Fund’s major fundraising event and brings together people from many different tribes, organizations, corporations, and communities.

The 2016 Fundraising Gala will be held on Saturday, November 5, at the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort, and includes the following.

  » Pre- and post-dinner networking receptions
  » Silent auction featuring Native art and cultural experiences
  » Dinner celebrating traditional and local foods
  » Cultural performances
  » Presentation of the Leadership Honoring Awards
  » Presentation of the Philanthropist of the Year Award
  » Presentation of the Social Innovation Award

The Fundraising Gala provides the opportunity to honor tribal leaders and local tribal initiatives, 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 undertakes important work throughout Northwest Indian Country. Join us in Suquamish - Saturday, November 5 - and help us celebrate over a decade of success!

Funds raised on the evening will be used to sustain the organization’s grantmaking and capacity building programs.

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