Leadership Snohomish County (LSC) is a nonprofit that connects, ignites and develops county-specific sustainable leaders to strengthen our communities. Each year, we help experienced and emerging leaders in Snohomish County gain an understanding of the critical issues affecting the region and the stewardship capabilities needed to resolve them. Through our nine-month Signature Program and Young Professionals Program, we work in small teams with the business, government and nonprofit sectors as Community Impact Project Partners. LSC features more than 700 alumni who remain strongly invested in Snohomish County.

Pay It Forward

Pay It Forward is Leadership Snohomish County’s annual fundraising campaign for LSC alumni that determines who is the official Best Class Ever. Arising from the stories of countless alumni who let us know how transformative the LSC experience was for them both personally and professionally, Pay It Forward provides a way to give back to those who may not have the opportunity to apply for the program. All proceeds from Pay It Forward go to LSC scholarships.

Are you ready for a little friendly competition? If LSC has proven valuable to you — personally, professionally or both — consider helping your class earn the official title of BEST CLASS EVER! That's right, if your class has the largest participation in the fundraiser, you'll get to carry the title of BEST CLASS EVER for a whole year! Funds raised will go toward LSC scholarships. The campaign runs through Dec. 6.


With Pay It Forward, participation is the name of the game. An alumna who wants her class to be dubbed the Best Class Ever can’t simply earn her class the title by making a hefty donation, because the campaign takes into consideration both dollars donated AND participation. So a class that has 10 people giving $10 a month could conceivably count more than a class in which five people made one-time donations of $300.

So no matter how you choose to give — monthly, quarterly, annually or one-time — your donation matters! It’s participation we value most, so even if you only give $5 a month, please Pay It Forward. You’ll get to pave the way for a prospective LSC participant and your donation might be the one that lassos the Best Class Ever title!

After the fundraiser ends, we’ll throw our Pay It Forward party on December 7, in which we’ll announce who truly is the BEST. CLASS. EVER! Until then, it remains the Class of 2016 …
