Q&A

I am a seasoned practitioner. Can I still get involved?

EPIP is committed to advancing inter-generational learning. This includes a model mentoring program at our New York City chapter, and plans for an advisory committee. If you are a seasoned grant maker or philanthropic practitioner, please contact us with your thoughts and questions. We hope to find ways to work with you.

If you are new to grantmaking but are not a young adult, our resources may still be helpful to you. Please contact us to let us know how we might be able to support your needs.

I am an emerging practitioner in philanthropy. How can I get involved?

EPIP events and projects happen because of the work of a dedicated group of talented volunteers, and you are invited to join us. Click here to learn how you can join EPIP.

Once you are a member, you can become an active participant in our online membership community.

You can also volunteer with your local EPIP chapter. Each EPIP chapter has a steering committee and volunteer meetings that serve as regular opportunities to plan, network and discuss substantive issues.
