Reflect. Innovate. Impact.

10th Annual Yale Philanthropy Conference

Over the past decade, the Yale Philanthropy Conference (YPC) has served as a platform to increase the effectiveness of philanthropy. For the tenth anniversary of YPC, join us to explore the cycle of growth and innovation with stakeholders from across the philanthropic landscape.

The cycle begins when organizations reflect upon lessons learned from the past and keep up with industry trends. Reflections inspire organizations to innovate, exploring new ventures and pushing boundaries. Through that process, organizations can better impact the world around them and grow positive social change. Each stage of the cycle facilitates the next such that impact eventually leads to further reflection and innovation.

As the only industry conference planned entirely by a top-tier business school, YPC embraces its tie to Yale’s School of Management (SOM) and the mission to create leaders for business and society. The conference is geared towards philanthropists and individuals working at foundations but also attracts nonprofit professionals, academics, consultants, and students.

2015 Graphic

With the milestone 10th Annual Yale Philanthropy Conference we decided to return to our roots—the elm tree of our logo which in turn ties us to our home in New Haven. We transformed the trunk of a tree into three gears expressing our 2015 theme, “Reflect. Innovate. Impact.”, three inter-connected, inter-working and forward-moving elements of philanthropy.
