Philanthropy 2021: Where are we now? Part of our free Lunch & Learn series

We’re online! This session will be presented online through Zoom. All registrants will receive the access link and password via email before the event.

A mid-year, check-in conversation with Michael Layton & Leslie Starsoneck

Most of us greeted New Year’s Day 2021 with a great deal of optimism. 2020 is over! We were ready for a reset and a refresh.

When we host this event, we’ll be nearly five months into 2021. So, let’s check in and see how we’re all doing.

  • How are you and your organization doing?
  • What’s going on in philanthropy (we’ll use our 11 Trends in Philanthropy for 2021 report to prompt discussion)?
  • What learning and skills-building needs do you see for yourself and your organization?
  • How can we help each other continue to navigate these turbulent times?

Join Michael Layton and Leslie Starsoneck for a conversation about where we are now. Together, we’ll explore our work and share experiences and observations about how 2021 is treating the nonprofit sector.


Price: Free!
Deadline to Register: May 12
