With generous support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation. ECONOMY & FINANCE Foundations are driving economic growth and providing strategic direction to key areas of social investment. To build stronger neighborhoods, cities, and regions requires a strong understanding of the current economic landscape. Sessions will explore how foundations can set priorities for investment and partnership. CIVIL SOCIETY While traditionally defined as institutions and organizations outside of the governmental and business sphere, civil society and the responsibility for a successful democracy is now becoming a collective accountability. How can philanthropy catalyze a just and equitable society? Programming in this area will look at both challenges and opportunities for civil society both here and across the world. Session support provided by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. COMMUNITY FOUNDATIONS As place-based hubs for local knowledge and resident needs, community foundations serve as anchors to both unify and inform how philanthropy leads a variety of stakeholders to work together. Sessions focus on forwardlooking issues of community foundation sustainability, leadership, and ability to address systemic change in the interest of driving the future of the philanthropic field. Reception support from the San Francisco Foundation. FAMILY FOUNDATIONS The dynamic nature of family philanthropy is informed by past legacy and forward-looking innovation from living donors and next generation engagement. Around the world, family philanthropists serve as change agents to leverage partnerships and spark collective action. Sessions are designed to help incorporate innovative strategies and new giving models in your own foundation, bringing about even greater change in your community. CORPORATE FOUNDATIONS Business is a central and undeniable influencer to effect positive social change around the globe, often coupling traditional grantmaking and with a range of tools and approaches for social investment. This track elevates examples of companies acting in new and different ways, thereby opening up a host of possibilities for the wider philanthropic field. Reception support from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. GLOBAL Given the increasingly global nature of philanthropy, the 2015 Annual Meeting includes programming for foundation leaders who support international activities. Sessions will discuss a range of topics that include the regulatory and practical challenges of global grantmaking, as well as philanthropy’s role in designing the Sustainable Development Goals, and new tools that track community philanthropy globally. POLICY This year’s public policy and legal sessions will tackle emerging issues such as public interest reporting and non-profit media and the connection between broadband, equity and economics, and will include the ever-popular Washington Update to bring members up-to-speed on legislative and regulatory action in Washington.
