2023 Corporate Philanthropy Institute: Building New Standards

NCG’s signature corporate event, the Corporate Philanthropy Institute brings over 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, and the bold steps companies are taking while tackling philanthropic business integration efforts and best practices. This event is open to members and nonmembers.

At this year’s Corporate Philanthropy Institute (CPI) we’ll explore what it means to create a new pathway and build new standards. We’ll highlight the pressures (both external and internal), offer context under which we’re doing our work today, share replicable strategies, provide tools for you to take back home to your company, and most importantly, offer space to be with others in the field wrestling with and seeking answers.
