Apply to Join the EPIP NY Steering Committee

Thank you for your interest in joining the EPIP NY Steering Committee! EPIP is a membership-based organization where people of all identities can live full and prosperous lives, supported by a diverse, equitable, inclusive and effective philanthropic sector.


Our members include:

  • Early-career professionals looking to develop their skills, to contribute their talents and insights through their work, and to lead change in their organizations and the sector;
  • Mid-career professionals newer to philanthropy seeking to deepen their understanding of the field and how to bring an equity lens to their work and the sector;
  • Mid-career professionals with philanthropic experience looking to take their leadership to the next level and committed to our vision and values;
  • Senior professionals and institutions excited by our vision for the sector, who want to bring their wisdom, experience and standing as champions to influence changes across the sector.

Supported by EPIP’s National Office, EPIP NY is one of 12 chapters across the country in which emerging leaders self-organize to provide each other with opportunities for professional growth and skills-building. We host programs and events, liaise with special interest groups, and create networking and partnership opportunities for our 400+ members in the NY philanthropic space.


Our work is made possible by outstanding volunteers who dedicate their time, resources, and ideas to the steering committee. These individuals share our vision of achieving social justice and equity through community and leadership. They are passionate about bringing their whole selves to their work and about empowering each other to have an impact – despite what your work title might say. They each bring a set of skills to the table and embrace the challenge of growing as effective leaders.
