Join friends and supporters of the Economic Opportunity Institute in support of our mission to build an economy that works – for everyone.
For nearly two decades, EOI has planted seeds and tended the growth of public policies to promote educational opportunity, good jobs, healthy families and workplaces, and a dignified retirement for all.
Mark your calendars now for Seeds of Change, our 2017 Annual Dinner. We’ll celebrate shared victories, be inspired by community allies working for change, and chart our course toward future successes.
Your support will help make local communities and Washington State a more equitable and just place for everyone to live, work, play and raise a family. Reserve your spot today!
