If there was ever a time to speak with a strong voice on the issues and values we care about, now is the time.  And no matter what causes you support or where you stand on the political spectrum, if you are involved in philanthropy you have a role to play in ensuring that philanthropy’s voice – and the voices of the nonprofits you support – are heard. 

This year, following our annual business meeting, we will build on the momentum of recent community discussions in the nonprofit sector around moral leadership, equity and transformation, by engaging in a dialogue with two national leaders about how funding organizations of all kinds are actively stepping up and giving voice to their values. 


Ronnie Pawelko, Elections Counsel for Alliance for Justice, Washington, DC, will offer examples of how private foundations and nonprofits have advanced their public policy and advocacy strategies in this critical time.

Davia Temin, President and CEO, Temin and Company, New York, NY, regularly works with C-suite executives to create and deploy reputational capital.  She will share her observations of how U.S. businesses are increasingly stepping up to lead not just in their own industries, but on social issues nationally.

This event will provide a unique opportunity to connect, learn and be inspired to think broadly and boldly about ways to amplify our own voices and the voices of those we support – thereby building a stronger sector, region and nation.

As always, there will be time for your questions and dialogue, and following the program members will enjoy a festive reception.
