The PCN was established in 2005 to widen the leadership pipeline and create opportunities for skills development and personal growth of young people of color in foundations and other philanthropic institutions. Since its inception, EPIP’s PCN has engaged 100+ young leaders from a diverse range of institutions, geographic locations, backgrounds and roles within the philanthropic field.

PCN is specifically intended to support young people of color in the field, such as Asian American, African American, Native American, Latin American, or multiracial individuals. This reflects EPIP’s emphasis on ensuring racial diversity within our next-generation work. EPIP members from outside the U.S. are also eligible to apply, although they should be considered people of color or minorities in their home countries.
