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. The 2019 event will be the fourth Philanthropy Innovation Summit hosted by Stanford PACS, and will include panel discussions, armchair interviews and intimate philanthropy salons.

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. Click here to download a Summit Overview document (3 MB PDF).

Attendance is by invitation only. If you already have your invitation code, you can click here to register.  If you would like to nominate an invitee, please email Stanford PACS.

The week of September 16th is quite busy on campus with freshman convocation, so we suggest that you make your lodging reservations as early as possible.
