Check out the video, photos and other content from the 38th Annual Meeting on the recap page.
Philanthropy New York is proud to announce our 38th Annual Meeting “The Power of Participation: Democracy Building Now.” The focus of this half-day conference will be on the interrelated issues associated with voting rights, access to participation and how people get the information that motivates them to engage.
As always, the Annual Meeting will begin with the election of new Philanthropy New York Board members and a review of the past year’s accomplishments.
Philanthropy New York thanks JPMorgan Chase & Co. for its generous hosting of the 38th Annual Meeting.
While we continue to develop the day’s events, we encourage Philanthropy New York members to register today and add this event to your calendars.
We will be updating this page with more information as the program develops. We will also send all registrants a full listing of speakers in the days before the Annual Meeting.
