Today’s environment of social and political turbulence has acute consequences for nonprofits. Their access to resources and the rights of communities they serve are increasingly at risk. At the same time, this environment is motivating citizens to take action, and prompting funders to think more carefully about how best to respond to the needs of at risk communities. In this environment of rapid change and uncertainty, nonprofits and funders must focus on how to keep the sector not only resilient but also increasingly effective in spite of these external challenges. Panelists and our speakers will share their invaluable experiences and insights with over 300 philanthropic leaders and professionals at YPC — a platform designed to empower organizations to effectively adapt and build resiliency in the philanthropic sector.

We are also honored to announce our two keynote speakers, Andrea Levere, President of Prosperity Now, and Aaron Dorfman, President and CEO of the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy.

Our panel discussions include:

  • Changing Gears: Making Strategic Shifts and Realignments
  • Getting Ready, Getting Resilient: Building Operational Capacity and Organizational Sustainability
  • Joining the Resistance: Marketing to the Activated Donor
  • Thinking Outside the Box: Fostering Creativity and Experimentation in Organizations
  • Toward Equity: Advancing Responsive Philanthropy

The Yale Philanthropy Conference is an inter-disciplinary forum for current and future leaders focused on the business of social change. Now in its fourteenth year, the Yale Philanthropy Conference is the only convening of the nonprofit and philanthropic sector planned entirely by MBA students. Bringing together thinkers, students, and professionals from leading institutions and foundations across the country, the conference fosters discussions, strengthens professional networks, builds management acumen, and cultivates leadership in the social sector and beyond.

Join us for an exciting day of keynotes, panels, and interactive workshops! Registration can be completed here.
