Brave Commitments is a group of nearly 50 nonprofit executives committed to strengthening and sustaining the nonprofit system that supports children, youth and families in Washington State. Non-profit agencies have made the brave commitment to speak in a united, collaborative voice to urge governmental entities to fully fund the crucial services they provide.
