Join EPIP and EPIP Chicago Chapter for 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 in 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 March 10, 11am- 2pm CST (Philanthropy History, Ecosystem, and Evolution)
Module 2: Thursday March 24, 11am- 2pm CST (Racial Equity, Advocacy and Policy in Grantmaking)
Module 3: Thursday, April 7, 11am- 2pm CST (Self-Advocacy and Personal Leadership)
The series costs $300 for members of EPIP. If you are an EPIP member in the greater Chicago area, you may be eligible for a scholarship through the generous support of the Macarthur Foundation.
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 anyone in the philanthropic sector.
There are 20 spots for those outside of Chicago who may be unable to attend another Philanthropology.
You must be a member of EPIP to attend. Not sure about your membership? Email [email protected]
