The Council is proud to partner with Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP) to create the Stay in L.A. Scholarship Fund so young philanthropic professionals have the opportunity to benefit from the incredible professional development and learning experiences at the 2012 EPIP conference and the Council's 2012 Annual Conference. Awardees will receive partial ($400) or full ($800) scholarships to attend the Council's conference, or they may receive support toward their airfare. Applicants must already be registered for the EPIP Conference to apply for a scholarship. For more information about eligibly and criteria or to apply, please click here.
The EPIP Conference is April 26–28 and the Council on Foundations Annual Conference is April 29–May 1. Because both are being held in Los Angeles, we are using this opportunity to join forces and develop innovative sessions that will focus on Next Generation issues such as leadership and public policy. You'll also have a chance to relax and party the night away at a special Generating Change Reception.
Also, be sure to check out the Next Gen programming at the Council's conference.
Young leaders from around the globe will discuss the many ways they are leading global change through a combination of innovation, dynamic uses of technology, and passion.
Last year, the White House Forum on Nonprofit Leadership launched a major initiative on the characteristics future nonprofit leaders will need to succeed in today's rapidly changing environment. Meanwhile, philanthropy also is considering how to develop its next generation of leaders. Hear from funders and sector leaders about why and how they are investing in the future of nonprofit and philanthropic leadership.
