Rooted in History, Growing with Purpose

YPC Tree

We believe that the best way forward is to first understand where we’ve been. With that in mind, the 2014 Yale Philanthropy Conference (YPC) will celebrate philanthropy’s deeply rooted heritage as the ideal context to explore the latest trends and innovations in the industry. We hope that YPC 2014 will encourage an insightful discussion of America’s rich philanthropic tradition while providing a thoughtful perspective on the most relevant issues facing the field today.

Breakout sessions will discuss how the sector can leverage and build on these roots to respond to cross-sector collaboration, new business models, impact measurement trends, and generational shifts. YPC fosters an environment where presenters, practitioners and students alike are encouraged – and inspired – to delve deep into the issues.
