John and Mary “Buzz” Folsom will be in the spotlight next month in Seattle as Washington’s Top Philanthropists for 25 Years are honored by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
More than 1,000 donors, volunteers, leaders and other supporters of nonprofit organizations will gather at Westin Hotel Nov. 14 for a luncheon celebrating National Philanthropy Day.
A retired CEO at Brown & Brown of Washington’s Tacoma office, John Folsom has long provided lead support and direction for community fund-raising campaigns on behalf of business support and nonprofit organizations. He is also the current chair of MultiCare Health Systems board of directors.
His wife, Buzz, joined John to co-lead the campaign to build Tacoma Goodwill Industries’ new headquarters complex a few years back, as well as many other major efforts. She is chair of Tacoma Goodwill Heritage Foundation.
The National Philanthropy Day luncheon is open to the public and registration details will be available at this link.
