The Philanthropy Innovation Summit is designed for individual philanthropists considering or currently making six figure gifts annually. Because of the often private nature of philanthropic decisions of this scope, and the collaborative experience we offer in this conference, we encourage a peer-learning environment for all attendees. We like to say that you can turn to your left and your right and be sharing with a peer philanthropist who is working through with similar philanthropic considerations as yours. It is a rare opportunity to share with and learn from your peers on the panels and in breakout sessions, and in the audience with you.

With this mind, we encourage development professionals, foundation executives, consultants, and others who work professionally in the philanthropy space to please consider some of the many other excellent professional philanthropy conferences available around the country. Additionally, our Stanford Social Innovation Review offers a Nonprofit Management Institute and other social change conferences that may be of interest. You can learn more about this here, and philanthropists are also welcome at SSIR events.
