2022 Member Week

Celebrate, Convene, Connect

Mark your calendars for Member Week, a time to celebrate and connect our more than 800 members within the philanthropic sector. We believe that when we come together as a membership community to connect through shared purpose, we can speak with a collective voice and achieve greater impact than we could alone. There are many opportunities during Member Week to network with peers, learn about the latest sector trends, and build skills to help your organization advance the greater good.
