Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia is excited to announce that our annual fall conference is now the SPARX Conference! The new name and logo highlight Philanthropy Network’s strategy to spark collective impact opportunities and align investments for greater impact. The “X” represents the cross-section of ideas and action.

The SPARX Conference is the premier event for regional funders, social investors, nonprofits, and other civic leaders who want to learn, connect, and lead social change in Greater Philadelphia.
