2024 Annual Conference Imagine & Act

Hi, we are glad you are here! 

This year's conference theme, Imagine & Act, resonates deeply with the current landscape of philanthropy. We recognize that we can only act on what we can imagine, and as philanthropic leaders, we are called to expand our collective imagination. How can we envision philanthropy not as it is, but as it could be at its best? How do we develop practices, tools, and ways of being that are in service of freedom and equity? These questions form the cornerstone of our conference.

Our goal is to inspire attendees to imagine a more equitable future and equip them to turn those visions into reality.
