Trends in High-Impact Philanthropy: Exploring Epic Foundation’s Outlook 2017 Report

Thursday, May 11, 2017 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm 
In-person | New York, NY

Check-in: 2:30 pm

Epic Foundation bridges the gap between a new generation of donors - philanthropists, corporations and foundations - and organizations supporting children and youth globally. The organization hinges on new tools focused on enhancing how donors select, monitor and experience their impact. Their vision is to disrupt the philanthropic industry by combining technology and partnerships with change-making leadership. Epic uses a global selection process and toolkit to identify high-impact organizations, developed with insights from the world's leading foundations, think-tanks and experts. 

Please join us for a panel discussion on trends, challenges, and innovations shaping the philanthropic market centered around the recently released Epic Outlook 2017.

The Outlook 2017 is a unique research report based on the analysis of over 2,000 NGOs and social enterprises supporting children and youth globally. This panel will be led by Nicola Crosta, Executive Vice president of Epic Foundation, in conversation with the Ali Forney Center (an organization from Epic's Foundation's portfolio of high-impact organizations), and an Epic Foundation donor.

Key questions to be explored will include:

  • What are the forces reshaping the philanthropic market?
  • What are the key challenges and innovations emerging among nonprofits globally?
  • What is the role of strategic philanthropists in fostering innovations and social impact today?

This event will bring together like-minded philanthropists, foundations, and nonprofit leaders to explore and discuss current strategic trends impacting philanthropy.

This course qualifies for 2 CFRE Education Credits.
