Join us for Florida Philanthropic Network's 2014 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 explore game-changing trends for Florida and how philanthropy needs to respond to ensure the best possible outcomes for our communities.

Summit Highlights

Carl HiaasenAmong the Summit's keynote speakers are some of the most acclaimed communicators about Florida, including Carl Hiaasen, an internationally renowned journalist, columnist and novelist who has been penning his observations about the Sunshine State since his father gave him a typewriter at age six. You won't want to miss his wry, satirical and sometimes flat-out funny perspectives about Florida's future.

Update: Hiaasen also will be signing copies of his new book, Dance of the Reptiles: Rampaging Tourists, Marauding Pythons, Crazed Celebrities, Larcenous Legislators, and Tar-Balled Beaches, which is being released on Jan. 28. We will have copies of the book for you to purchase at the Summit.

John MoranYou'll also experience the work of noted Florida nature photographer John Moran, whose interactive, lyrical and visually stunning presentation will describe the current state of water in Florida and demonstrate why water is a game-changing issue for Florida's future.  
Al LetsonEnjoy an evening performance by Jacksonville-based playwright, performance poet, actor and public radio host Al Letson as he chronicles his journey working at a community center summer camp in an economically challenged neighborhood in Jacksonville. His off-Broadway solo play, Summer in Sanctuary, will take you into the heart of a community, and leave you with a better understanding of the world. 
Hear from four national philanthropy and nonprofit leaders who will share their perspectives on key game changers for philanthropy: Ben Cameron of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation; Jacob Harold of GuideStar; John Kobara from the California Community Foundation; and Ralph Smith from the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
