Whatcom Center for Philanthropy – Meeting Room Reservations

The Whatcom Center for Philanthropy (WCP) is  a collaboration between the Chuckanut Health Foundation, United Way of Whatcom County and the Whatcom Community Foundation. These three philanthropies are pursuing new and different ways of working together as well as with our nonprofit partners in order to better serve and support all of our Whatcom County neighbors.  Each organization has its own suite of offices as well as shared conference rooms that are available for use by our nonprofit partners free of charge. Our goal is to create an environment where connections are made, ideas are shared and great things can happen. 

We are happy to announce that local nonprofit organizations that have a professional association with Chuckanut Health Foundation, United Way of Whatcom County and/or Whatcom Community Foundation  may now request to reserve these meeting rooms.
