Daisha Versaw is a writer, local investor, community philanthropist, and social entrepreneur. She recently returned to independent consulting after serving for a season as Director of Community Programs for the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound, where she was a firm advocate for social change and equitable funding practices centered on trust and relationships
Daisha holds a Master of Nonprofit Management degree from Regis University and has spent 15 years learning from and contributing to a number of community-based organizations in various roles—staff, board member, strategy & communications consultant, donor, mentor, and volunteer. Professionally, she is most fulfilled when her skills, knowledge, and lived experience lift up the work of others through strategy and systems work, grant making and investments, building authentic relationships across differences, and telling stories that inspire action.
When she is not fiddling with a system map, investing in local sauerkraut companies, or plotting a mutiny, you’ll find her teaching her three teen boys how to cook; wandering a rainforest, mountain, or beach on the lands of the Coast Salish people with her husband; writing science fiction; or around the fire with friends.
