EPIP New York is an intergenerational home for emergent philanthropic practitioners to cultivate bold ideas, develop professional agency, and strengthen community. We are committed to building a sector that is responsive to and reflective of the social, political, and economic context of our time: rooted in social justice and inspired by intersectional vision.
We are excited to announce that applications for the EPIP NY Steering Committee are now open! The application deadline has been extended to Sunday, September 19th.
What is the steering committee?
The EPIP NY Steering Committee is a group of dedicated volunteers who work to build community and support the learning and professional growth of EPIP members. Steering Committee members host events, build relationships with partners in the field, and support each other and our chapter membership in the journey to bring about social justice.
