There's still time to register for Florida Philanthropic Network's 2015 Statewide Summit on Philanthropy. 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. We'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.
Summit Highlights
James JosephTo kick off the 2015 Summit we'll hear from one of our country’s most revered national and international civil servants and philanthropic leaders: Ambassador James A. Joseph. Ambassador Joseph will draw on his vast global experience, over many decades, to offer insights on how today’s grantmakers can address the growing challenges we face as we seek to improve our communities and our state and make a difference in our work.
Stephen DubnerThe 2015 Summit closes on a provocative note with keynote speaker Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of the New York Times best-sellers Freakonomics, SuperFreakonomics and 2014’s Think Like a Freak. With his trademark blend of captivating storytelling and unconventional analysis, Dubner will offer a blueprint for an entirely new way to think about solving the intractable community problems we confront in our daily work.
Fail Fest 2014The 2014 FailFest was one of the most highly rated sessions at any FPN Summit, so we’re pleased to bring it back for an encore in 2015 - FailFest 2.0! Hear from a group of Florida grantmakers who will share stories of their favorite failures and how they learned to embrace humility, affirm the value of taking risks and be honest about learning from mistakes.
Deep CityEnjoy dinner and a movie with a screening and discussion of Deep City: Birth of the Miami Sound. The 2014 documentary takes us back to when South Florida was the hotbed of soul, funk, rhythm and blues. Co-producer and co-director Dennis Scholl, Vice President of the Arts for the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, will lead a post-screening discussion.
Aaron Dorfman   Engage in a conversation with Aaron Dorfman of the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy and William A. Schambra of the Hudson Institute's Bradley Center for Philanthropy and Civic Renewal, as they explore how philanthropy can bridge different ideological perspectives to speak with a strong collective voice on key policy issues and partner to address critical community needs.   William Schambra
You'll learn from national and state funders about how they've tackled critical community issues in Florida such as improving post-secondary success, ending chronic homelessness, supporting transitioning veterans, improving the workforce skills gap and much more. Our interactive sessions with experts will do deep dives on key philanthropic practices including evaluating our investments, using communications for social change, using data more effectively, impact investing and successful corporate citizenship.
2014 SummitYou'll have numerous opportunities to network and interact with your colleagues, including an opening night reception, extended networking time, and pre-Summit affinity group meetings for grantmakers on grants management, education and health care funding, corporate giving & communications. Plus a Public Policy Roundtable Breakfast and Tax & Legal Update.
