Annual Conference

Corporate Philanthropy Institute

New Grantmakers Institute

Every spring, NCG hosts its Annual Conference designed specifically for members. It addresses the current issues impacting our communities on a local and national scale. By discussing ideas and challenges, we explore how the philanthropic sector can develop real-world solutions to cultivate healthier, thriving communities here in Northern California. The Conference is an opportunity to engage all your senses, ignite new energy into your work, and deepen your connections with our philanthropic community.

NCG’s signature corporate event, the Corporate Philanthropy Insitute (CPI) brings 300 corporate peers together each year. With a constantly changing and evolving world, we are challenged to contemplate our role in addressing the issues that affect our communities. Each year's theme addresses where the CSR field is heading, what bold steps companies are taking while tackling philanthropic business integration efforts and best practices.
