Marci's Column - February 2017

Last chance! This is our last call for applications to enroll in our 2017 Leadership Discovery Programs. If you thought it was too late, it’s not! We will take applications until February 28th. Thank you to our entire EDI network for your referrals and for spreading the word about our programs. We are looking forward to meeting the Class of 2017 at our upcoming Jumpstart events.

Aside from our programs launching in March, there are many other events and initiatives that we are excited about and will be sharing with you throughout the year. 

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 10th. This is Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG day.  This will be our 4th year participating and once again we are doubling our goal to $20,000. It’s one of the only times you can “stretch” your dollars. The more money EDI raises the higher percentage of matching funds we receive from the Seattle Foundation.  We encourage everyone to donate on May 10th and help us raise more money in one day than ever before!  I know that you are all up for this challenge.

We are also in the process of launching our Ambassador Boards (A-Board) in both Puget Sound and Portland. These are alumni boards that will help EDI with alumni engagement, recruitment and hosting events.  We look forward to introducing our A-Board members soon!
