Celebration Of Philanthropy


We have decided to postpone the Kitsap Celebration of Philanthropy event until May of 2022. 


The central purpose of the Celebration is to honor Kitsap County’s Philanthropy Award recipients and celebrate the good work of our County’s nonprofits. We feel it’s best to postpone until next year when circumstances will allow for our normal gala event with a wonderful crowd that can honor our County’s Philanthropy Award recipients correctly and bring together our community to celebrate local philanthropy fully. 

We are deeply grateful to our sponsors, Board of Directors, Celebration Planning Committee, and staff for all of the hard work to reach out to the community and champion this grand event. 

Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate through this pandemic. We know that we will get through this together.
