The Philanthropy Innovation Summit is a biennial event that convenes individual and family philanthropists to discuss strategic and impactful giving in a non-solicitation environment.

This invitation-only event is designed for individual philanthropists with the ability to give six-figure annual support to the issues about which they care. Philanthropists with varying levels of experience and diverse backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
