    Zoom Meeting

    EPIP Boston | Conversation with Ryan Ginard on his book "Future Philanthropy: The Tech, Trends & Talent Defining New Civic Leadership"


    Philanthropy is stuck. As societal issues constantly evolve, philanthropic systems have been slow to match, leaving our communities’ needs sorely unmet. But what would happen if philanthropy became a progressive industry, rather than a sluggish and reactionary one?

    In Future Philanthropy, Ryan Ginard calls on his years of experience as a civic connector and fundraiser to anticipate incoming philanthropic trends and lay the groundwork for their adoption. You’ll learn how to develop the right team, capitalize on current trends, create change in reimagined institutions, and disrupt our outdated philanthropic systems.

    Ginard also puts the spotlight on fourteen leaders across various industries who are already finding success implementing the tools outlined in this book, offering up inspiration for your own strategic planning. No matter which side of the giving tree you’re on, Future Philanthropy has some - thing for leaders at all levels in government, higher education, nonprofits and NGOs, grassroots activism, philanthropy organizations, and more.

     EPIP Boston invites philanthropic and nonprofit professionals for a intimate conversation with Ryan Ginard on September 29, 2021 at 6:00-7:00 pm to discuss the future of philanthropy.

    Philanthropology - Fall 2021

    Join EPIP, the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers, and EPIP DC Chapter for the debut of Philanthropology™, a 3-module social justice grounding in philanthropy. 

    In order to use philanthropy to effect change, it is crucial that new practitioners in the sector understand its context, history, and challenges. Philanthropology™, first developed by EPIP in 2012 and revised for 2021, responds to this need with a curriculum that includes both academic and practitioner perspectives in an in-depth critical study of philanthropy and social justice created for and informed by the next generation of inclusive grantmakers. 

    The Philanthropology™ curriculum includes 9 hours of synchronous virtual content and supplemental activities that cover the landscape and history of the sector, intersectionality, movement building, grantmaking with an equity lens, and strategies for self-advocacy and professional development.

    The curriculum also offers 3 hours of asynchronous activities and ample readings to further your knowledge


    Registration for the series includes all three modules, which will take place over Zoom: 
    Module 1: Thursday October 21, 1-4 pm EST (Philanthropy History, Ecosystem, and Evolution)
    Module 2: Thursday November 4, 1-4 pm EST (Racial Equity, Advocacy and Policy in Grantmaking) 
    Module 3: Thursday, November 18, 1-4 pm EST (Self-Advocacy and Personal Leadership)

    The series costs $300 for members of either EPIP or WRAG (you don't need to be a member of both). If that cost is prohibitive for you to attend, please email [email protected], as we will have a limited number of scholarships available dedicated for practitioners in the DC Metro Area. 

    If you participated in the Philanthropology™ session of EPIP's R/evolution Conference, please email [email protected] to register your interest and receive your $50 discount code. 

    Eligibility and Audience
    Philanthropology™ is designed for early- to mid-career philanthropy practitioners who have less than 3 years in the field, or feel like they need a refresher through a social justice lens, though the program will benefit 

    We are reserving 20 spots in this program for practitioners in the DC Metro Area. The rest are open to EPIP members across the country. 

    You must be a member of either EPIP or Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers. Not sure about your membership? Email [email protected] or [email protected] 

    Note: the Add To Calendar button below will only add the first module of this series. Please make sure you manually hold the times for the 2nd and 3rd modules. Dates are listed above.

    Emerging Women of Color Community of Practice - Peer Coaching

    Join EPIP and fellow emerging women of color in the field for structured peer coaching. Building off of CompassPoint's framework for peer coaching, you'll have an hour to meet your peers, offer coaching, and receive coaching for dilemmas you're facing in the workplace. We'll begin the session with a grounded meditation, then provide grounding in a peer coaching framework before diving into coaching. 

    The Emerging Women of Color community of practice is a new initiative of EPIP focused on leadership development and network weaving for early- and mid-career women of color in philanthropy. Created in response to member requests, this community provides leadership development through the lens of race and gender. It will also work to connect early-career women of color with a network of peers so that it takes less effort to ‘find your people’ in the field. 

    Participation in all EPIP Communities of Practice is limited to EPIP members. Interested in becoming a member? Visit our membership page to learn more.

    People of Color Network - Peer Coaching Q4

    Join the People of Color Network for a lightly facilitated peer coaching hour, following the success of our PCN deep dive at the 2021 National Conference: R/evolution.

    Peer coaching is an empowering tool to support your philanthropic peers of color while also reflecting on your own experiences and growth. While coaching is an effective tool in any instance, it is more impactful amongst peers who share similar experiences based on identities or lived experiences. At the beginning of the session, we will provide light framing and give time for reflection to choose a dilemma or scenario around which you'd like coaching. 

    This session is open to current EPIP members who identify as people of color. 

    Once you register, you'll be brought to a Zoom registration link to get the link to the session. Please make sure you complete this second step.

    The People of Color Network (PCN) is a professional development and peer support network for EPIP members who identify as people of color. The PCN began in 2012 to support early- and mid-career people of color in philanthropy in attending sector conferences. Since then, it has evolved to involve workshops, a PCN-specific newsletter, and networking opportunities. The PCN uses the EPIP Inclusive Leadership Framework as a basis for skill-building and focus.
