Sponsorship is one of the best ways to brand your organization as a thought leader and to highlight your commitment to advancing the philanthropic sector. As a conference partner, you will be able to:

  • Connect with industry decision makers. With over 1,000 attendees, the Council’s conference is the sector’s place to be heard and seen. The Council represents organizations with combined assets of over $210 billion and approximately $15 billion in giving.
  • Showcase your organization’s expertise at a world-class conference. The conference provides high-quality opportunities for attendees to learn, connect, and share with their peers.
  • Demonstrate your leadership. As we focus on the essential role that philanthropy plays in society, share with your colleagues the topics and work you care deeply about.
