2019 Philanthropy Summit: Philanthropy at a Crossroads

Host Organization: Sanford Institute of Philanthropy


It’s that time of year for the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at John F. Kennedy University to convene its Annual Philanthropy Summit. This is your chance to engage your peers in the local nonprofit and giving community on the big questions currently facing the sector. This year’s theme is Philanthropy at a Crossroads: Developing Authentic Donor Engagement and Shaping a Healthier Nonprofit.

“Philanthropy is at a crossroads with many forces at play that are challenging and pushing us to reimagine what it can be in the 21st century,” says Solomon Belette, Director of the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at JFKU. “Our keynote speaker Phil Buchanan and other notable leaders and writers are asking challenging questions such as whether philanthropy is doing enough.” Join us to tackle these questions together and to gain new insights into ways of reinvigorating your relationships with donors, who are vital to nonprofit success.

Which way is the nonprofit sector going? What does this mean for everyone involved in this work? How do organizations adapt, retool, and continue being effective without burning out? In the midst of all the changes currently facing the sector, afternoon keynote speaker Beth Kanter, author of The Happy Healthy Nonprofit, will discuss why self-care and wellbeing are essential for nonprofits.

Join us to hear from these esteemed keynote speakers, a panel of local experts, and of course, your peers in the local nonprofit and giving community. Breakfast and lunch will be served at this day-long event, and all participants will receive a complimentary copy of Phil Buchanan’s book, Giving Done Right: Effective Philanthropy and Making Every Dollar Count. We are grateful to Marathon Petroleum Services for sponsoring this event. RSVP today!
