  • Reconnect with alumni & meet others for the first time!
  • Be inspired by speakers from in and outside of our community
  • Explore spirit and purpose

Back by popular demand, we will return to The Collective this Fall! The Collective was co-founded by C9 Alex Mondau and is a dynamic urban clubhouse located in the South Lake Union neighborhood. We look forward to seeing as many of you possible! Grab your tickets today. If you have any questions, please contact Board@pinchotalumni.org!

Here Are Additional Ways YOU Can Get Involved!

*Make a Generous Donation – maybe you are unable to attend this year’s event, but want to play a role? Please consider a one-time, tax-deductible contribution to support the alumni association’s important community work

*Help With Contributions for the Scholarship Fund – visit the Eventbrite registration page and look for the BIG THINKER ticket choice – all proceeds from this category will go into a pool to seed reduced travel or conference fee expenses for alums with a demonstrated need who’d like to attend but otherwise could not. If you cannot make a donation yourself, perhaps make the suggestion to follow alums to support this opportunity for others.

*Purchase a For_Good_Measure ticket – this is a win-win purchase as ticket holders gain admission to a great gathering but with the added satisfaction of knowing they are also supporting the ongoing work of the volunteer alumni association

The Pinchot Alumni Association is a small-but-mighty, volunteer-run organization. Our purpose is providing a home for our alumni community and support for anyone who attended or completed Pinchot University and/or Bainbridge Graduate Institute (BGI) programs, certificates and classes. We are proud that we earned federally recognized 501c3 non-profit status in 2018. That means all contributions to your alumni association are tax-deductible. The board, with help from a number of community volunteers, have been working to build out the tools to serve our community including an online alumni database, consistent in-person and online events, monthly newsletters, and more. (Psst: We can always use more help!! If you want to get involved or help out, reach out anytime via email to board@PinchotAlumni.org.)
