Philanthropy Innovation Summit 2023

Join us March 1, 2023 for a day of learning, sharing, and inspiration at this unique convening of peer philanthropists.

The Philanthropy Innovation Summit is a signature event of Stanford PACS, designed exclusively for individual and family philanthropists. The Summit is an exceptional opportunity to explore new strategies and approaches to giving, connect and reconnect with peers from around the world, and become equipped with tools, resources, and actions necessary to create meaningful social change.

The 2023 Summit will feature insights from leaders in philanthropy, academia, and social impact including José Andrés, Laura Arnold, Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen, Andrew Huberman, Van Jones, Edward Norton, Michael Pollan, Regan Pritzker, Jeff Raikes, Lauren Sánchez, Sheryl Sandberg, Mike Schroepfer, Liz Simons, Jonathan Soros, Darren Walker, Robb Willer, and many more. Through plenary conversations and more intimate salon discussions, we will explore ideas and opportunities for addressing some of today’s most enduring and existential challenges, including climate change, gender and racial injustice, economic inequality, political animosity, and other far-reaching issues that are impeding social progress and human flourishing worldwide.

Our aspiration is for the Summit to provide actionable knowledge and tangible resources to help ensure a strong civil society and philanthropic sector rooted in the ethical and effective use of our collective will and resources.

The Summit is an invitation-only event. For inquiries and nominations, please email Erin Fogg at

We can’t wait to come together once again!
