A new generation of donors has radically altered the act of making a donation. These socially conscious and financially savvy donors conduct their philanthropic activities as they would their business ventures, seeking to "invest" in sustainable projects that offer measurable results – and lasting impact – for the beneficiary and the larger community.

Join us for this special evening featuring a panel of progressive thought leaders who are pursuing their passions in their professional and philanthropic lives – and creating a sustained impact in the world in the process. They will share what it takes, in the current economic, cultural and political climate, to ensure long-term viability for your altruistic endeavors.

Our program will address:

  • Balancing the preservation and investment of existing wealth and donations with the ongoing need to attract new donors
  • Perpetuating endowments
  • Devoting time to fundraising and marketing
  • Contemplating a lasting legacy
