SPARK: WHAT SPARKS YOUR ACTION, CONNECTIONS, AND IDEAS
February 14–15, 2019 | Lake Buena Vista, Florida
In an era of hashtag philanthropy, we are reminded that our work must reflect the society in which we want to live. The pace of change is as varied as the neighborhoods in which we live, but it starts with a spark – an idea, an action, a connection – when our mission and values intersect with our communities. Throughout history, these sparks have fueled collaboration, leadership and inclusion as grantmakers work toward informed and equitable change in a field that, by definition, practices love of humanity. As the largest gathering of grantmakers in our state, the annual FPN Summit offers a unique opportunity for sponsors to reach a diverse audience from varying organizations while helping to build philanthropy to build a better Florida.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
More than 250 professionals from the charitable sector are expected to attend FPN’s 2019 Statewide Summit on Philanthropy. More than 90% of participants are from grantmaking organizations, including CEOs, board members and staffs of private independent and family foundations, community foundations, public charity grantmakers and corporate foundations/giving programs from throughout Florida. Top government, nonprofit, business and academic leaders from Florida are also invited.
NON SOLICITATION POLICY
Since a vital role of Florida Philanthropic Network is to provide an opportunity for grantmakers to meet in a collegial and respectful atmosphere, it is not appropriate to solicit donations at FPN programs, events and other functions. Collaborative grantmaking is encouraged. Organizations that have a dual grantmaking and grantseeking role agree that their development staff will not utilize FPN activities or resources for fundraising/development purposes.
