In an era of hashtag philanthropy, we are reminded that our work must reflect the society in which we want to live. The pace of change is as varied as the neighborhoods in which we live, but it starts with a spark – an idea, an action, a connection – when our mission and values intersect with our communities. Throughout history, these sparks have fueled collaboration, leadership, and inclusion as grantmakers work toward informed and equitable change in a field that, by definition, practices love of humanity.
As the largest gathering of grantmakers in our state, the annual FPN Summit offers a unique opportunity for sponsors to reach a diverse audience from varying organizations while helping to build philanthropy to build a better Florida.
The Summit is open to all staff and board members of any grantmaking foundation or other types of grantmaking organization, including private independent foundations, private family foundations, public grantmaking foundations, public charity grantmakers, community foundations, corporate foundations and corporate giving programs. The Summit is also open to invited leaders of government agencies and departments, businesses, academic institutions, and membership associations or other umbrella organizations that represent the interests of the charitable sector.
Vendors/consultants cannot attend the Summit unless they are a Summit sponsor, or are representing a foundation/grantmaker client at the request of that foundation/grantmaker client.
