Philanthropy is a concept associated with charitable giving. There is no doubt, one act of Philanthropy is monetary giving. But Philanthropy is actually a much larger concept, involving service and volunteerism. Join us on October 25th to discuss the importance of philanthropy to the fabric of our civil society. We are excited to host David Battey, Founder and CEO of the Youth Volunteer Corps, as our keynote address. He will share the impact philanthropic activity had on him as a youth, and how that experience led to the development of an International youth service organization. Mr. Battey’s experience will be followed by an interactive panel of local philanthropists. Joining the panel will be Bob Hopkins, whose new book, Philanthropy Misunderstood, inspired this program. Bob formerly from Kansas City, now resides in Dallas. He is a former board member of AFP International, a college professor and founder of Philanthropy World magazine.
We hope you can join us for a fruitful conversation about how a more expansive understanding of philanthropy can be a strategic fit for your nonprofit organization.
Note: Bob Hopkins’ book, Philanthropy Misunderstood, will be available for purchase at the event.
