Join EPIP for our Winter 2024 Cohort of Philanthropology™! This is the first year we are opening registration for our signature curriculum to the entire sector!
In order to use philanthropy to drive social change, it is crucial that new practitioners in the sector understand its context, history, and challenges. Philanthropology™ is EPIP's signature curriculum that responds to this need with an in-depth critical study of philanthropy through a social justice lens that includes academic and practitioner perspectives.
The Philanthropology™ curriculum includes 9 hours of synchronous virtual sessions spread over several weeks supplemented by reading materials, videos, and reflection activities. Participants learn the landscape and history of the philanthropic sector and dig into concepts like intersectionality, movement building, grantmaking with an equity lens, and strategies for putting this knowledge into practice.
This 3-module curriculum uses a liberatory facilitation lens to accommodate multiple learning styles and methods of engagement. Participants are encouraged to come to sessions relaxed and ready to learn with peers across the country.
The curriculum is delivered by trained facilitators from within the EPIP community, providing an opportunity for EPIP members and alumni to share their knowledge and perspectives as emerging leaders in the sector. The content is also informed by EPIP’s Inclusive Leadership Framework and develops participants’ sector knowledge, ability to take an equity analysis, and so much more!

This year's People of Color Network (PCN) Gathering will take place on November 5th and 6th in Boston. This is the 7th gathering of our members of color. PCN gatherings provide participants with opportunities to explore identity, race, and social impact. The content of PCN gathering itself is three-fold: 1) personal connections to social justice work; 2) understanding structural racism; and 3) bringing this work back home. Participant responses are resoundingly positive; we hope you'll come find out for yourself.Read more
