Why Join Us?
We develop and deliver unique and valuable programming that builds the leadership skills and knowledge base of emerging foundation professionals. We provide formal and informal career coaching, professional development, and other boosters for your career. We connect you with other EPIP members working across the field of philanthropy and nonprofits. We dissolve the boundaries that can make it difficult to start careers in philanthropy and grow within them.
OUR NEW STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK
For over fifteen years, EPIP has been a place for emerging leaders to learn, grow and advance.
Today, the needs of our members and the times we live in call upon us to elevate our vision.
Our new strategic framework does just that.
Through this new framework, we will:
Professional and Leadership Development
Develop Whole Leaders
We will deepen our work to develop our members not just as skilled professionals, but also as whole people and complete change agents.
Advocacy and Influence
Advocate and Innovate
We will promote innovation and effective practices -- and when necessary speak hard truths -- to support the success of our members and other diverse changemakers
Lead for Equity
We will work as part of a broader movement to advance equity in and through philanthropy

In the ever-changing climate for LGBTQ people in our country, what’s it like to an LGBTQ person in philanthropy? More specifically, what’s it like to be an LGBTQ person working in a non-LGBTQ (or “mainstream”) foundation? Given our own work in both philanthropy and in the LGBTQ community, we’ve become increasingly interested in this question. We’ve done some initial research and are currently seeking more perspectives. It is important that we capture the experiences of individuals working in all types of foundations large and small, public and private, and all geographic areas of the country. Findings and analysis will be released in an upcoming EPIP Issue Brief.
