Why join us?
We’re the only organization that does what we do. We exist to serve and empower emerging leaders: the people who are building their roles in philanthropy today, and will one day be running philanthropies and nonprofits.
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 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.
Who are we?
EPIP members are a diverse group of people working all around the country, an image of the future of philanthropy. We’re currently comprised of 14 national chapters (and growing!).
Bringing our insights from many different backgrounds, we are committed to making philanthropies and nonprofits more equitable and better representative of American demographics.
Our members work at some of the most prominent and forward-thinking institutions in the country.
