What's New

Register today for Florida Philanthropic Network's 2015 Statewide Summit on Philanthropy on January 29-30, 2015. The event is the one time each year when people involved in Florida philanthropy gather together in one place to share what we're learning; discuss key issues for Florida's health, vitality and well-being; and hear from key state and national thought leaders. You'll get the latest thinking on how to manage the many tensions inherent in our work so that we can maximize the impact of our philanthropy, with access to high-level experts, exposure to new approaches and tools, and deep dives on critical community issues.

We’ll also unveil a new online mapping tool, accessible to our members, that will allow them to easily visualize the size, scope and impact of philanthropic investments in Florida. [Read More]
