Scarce resources for Alaska’s nonprofits. A booming retirement age population in Idaho. A shaky economy in Montana following a year of dramatic growth. Oregonians embracing donor-advised funds. Tech professionals flocking to Washington.

The five states that make up the Northwest each face distinct philanthropic challenges and opportunities. While several major studies are published on U.S. giving each year, regional data is traditionally less accessible. To address this gap and help Northwest nonprofits adapt to the philanthropic landscape in which they operate, we created “Unique Northwest: Distinct Giving Trends and Strategies for Five Distinct States.”

Our Northwest team recently celebrated four decades of service to the region and retired the Collins Group name. In the midst of these milestones, we met with our colleagues to discuss what sets wildly successful organizations apart. From these discussions, we distilled our time-tested best practices to help you create and sustain meaningful impact—during your next campaign and beyond.

In 2013, Collins Group joined forces with Campbell & Company, a national nonprofit consulting and executive search firm. Over the past four years, we have worked hard to integrate our teams, learn from each other, and build on our collective strengths. September 1st marks the last step of our integration as we retire the Collins Group name and unify under the Campbell & Company name and identity. Collins Group will be known as the Campbell & Company Northwest team going forward. This milestone allows us to stay true to our team approach and advance our mission to collaborate and innovate with people who change lives through philanthropic vision and action.
