Upaya Joins Global Washington


Upaya is pleased to announce the organization has joined Global Washington, a coalition of Washington nonprofit organizations, foundations, businesses, academic institutions and corporations working to improve the economic, social and environmental conditions of the world’s poorest people.

"Upaya has undoubtedly benefited from the supportive environment for organizations focused on poverty alleviation in Washington, and membership in Global Washington is an opportunity to further grow that community," said Steve Schwartz, Upaya's Director of Strategy & Operations. "We are excited by the opportunity to connect with like-minded businesses and peer organizations who share our values, and hope that together we realize our goal of creating pathways out of poverty for the very poorest," he said.

Global Washington is a broad-based membership association that promotes and supports the global development sector in the state of Washington. Composed of non-profit organizations, foundations, businesses, government and academic institutions, our members work collectively to build a more equitable and prosperous world. Global Washington convenes members to generate new opportunities for growth, strengthens member organizations to increase their impact, and advocates across key global development issues at the local, national, and global level.
