2014 Yale Philanthropy Conference
Rooted in History, Growing with Purpose
The Yale Philanthropy Conference is an interdisciplinary forum that explores topics in philanthropy in order to foster dialogue, strengthen networks, and cultivate leadership in the sector. YPC fosters an environment where presenters, practitioners and students alike are encouraged – and inspired – to delve deep into the issues. YPC is one of the premier philanthropy conferences in the country and as the only one organized by a top-tier business school, the Yale School of Management, it provides a unique and critical perspective on challenging management issues facing the field. The theme for YPC 2014, Rooted in History, Growing with Purpose, will celebrate philanthropy’s deeply rooted heritage as the ideal context to explore the latest trends and innovations in the industry.
The two plenary sessions of the Yale Philanthropy Conference (YPC) will be broadcast live from New Haven, CT on February 7, 2014.
