2017 Fall Conference

Philanthropy Network’s 2017 Fall Conference

November 2, 2017 | Loews Philadelphia Hotel

Philanthropy Network's annual Fall Conference is a one-of-a kind regional gathering that brings together over 400 leaders from the philanthropic, nonprofit, corporate, and government sectors from throughout Greater Philadelphia. The event provides a unique meeting place for those of us engaged in building a stronger sector and region to convene, connect, learn and be inspired to think broadly and boldly about new ways to work together to increase our impact. 

Our conference in 2016 focused on coming together as a region and as a sector, to build a “more perfect union.” Since then, our sector has been besieged by a multitude of challenges; from immigration to education, health to LGBTQ issues, we have had to navigate a new and constantly shifting landscape to advance our work and ensure that the people, organizations and communities we serve continue to be protected, supported and enriched.

In these turbulent and troubling times, it is more important than ever that we, as representatives of the social impact sector, remain steadfast in our vision, voice and values by:

  • staying squarely focused on our organizations’ missions – our north star - while finding new and creative ways to work together in order to amplify our impact;
  • reaffirming and activating the core values that guide us and give our work meaning, both as individuals and organizations; and
  • speaking out about our work to drive positive change that advances a more just, equitable and prosperous region for all.

This year's event promises to be a unique opportunity for representatives of our region's social sector to come together to connect, reflect and learn alongside colleagues and partners, and be inspired to think broadly and boldly about new ways we can act and invest to increase our collective impact.
