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 education philanthropy, we share a collective sense of urgency to find the appropriate solutions to mitigate the achievement gap. Yet, we each concentrate our time on pursuing distinct but complementary missions. How many of us find ourselves wishing we could team up with other organizations to share collective learning and coordinate our efforts?

In response to membership feedback, EPIP Bay Area is proud to launch the pilot of a new Mentorship Program to connect young, emerging professionals in philanthropy with experienced practitioners in order to expand networks, deepen learning opportunities, and strengthen professional development.
Inspired by EPIP National’s strategic framework and similar programs hosted by EPIP Boston, EPIP DC, and EPIP LA, the Bay Area chapter sees this as an opportunity to support our members in their internal and external advocacy and our shared commitment to equity and social justice in philanthropy.
The inaugural 2018-2019 cohort includes up to 10 emerging and mid-level leaders and up to 10 seasoned professionals who are paired for one-on-one Mentoring Partnerships.
