The Philanthropy Leaders Summit has emphasized the importance of strategic action around giving for more than a decade. We have seen the critical role philanthropy has played in the recovery of the global pandemic.


The culmination of the past years has redefined how we show up as philanthropists to support the causes near to us. Our program will address how this new pulse has allowed philanthropists to craft an even more strategic way of benevolence and how unity has propelled our philanthropic landscape. 

We are excited to announce this year, our Philanthropy Leaders Summit will be hosted in Las Vegas and Reno simultaneously, with an option to view virtually. We look forward to seeing you on September 9th, 2022 to ignite the true spirit of collaboration and compassion of philanthropists!
