Congratulations Moonridge and Summit leadership for a great event, and for your fearless adaptability to change! The speakers were great, the interlude was amazing, and of course, it all was managed flawlessly. Such an honor to be associated with and to support such a great group of people who do everything with the utmost professionalism, grace and heart.
EDAWN is honored to be a sponsor, and I am fortunate to have the opportunity to represent them.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we realize the importance of connecting, inspiring, and sharing best practices in giving. For this reason, we have shifted our focus to provide the special convening virtually. While we will miss the opportunity to be together as we have in years past, we also know there are no barriers to our unity of philanthropy.
The Moonridge Foundation Philanthropy Leaders Summit is a premier funders forum on social impact, innovation, and strategic giving. These summits bring together corporate funders, family foundations, and individual philanthropists to explore the future of giving locally and across the globe. Attendees hear from dynamic speakers and share the latest in best practices, lessons learned and trends in giving.
