PNY 40th Annual Meeting Recap

For our 40th Anniversary annual meeting we were delighted to celebrate our work together with our membership and to create space for intriguing and challenging conversations.

Throughout the day we were presented with discussions that illuminated our understanding of the state of philanthropy and encouraged us to work toward more honest evaluations that are essential to establishing the equity we all hope to achieve. We learned about emerging tools, directions and structures within our industry and how they point to promising practices, including the shifting and sharing of power, working with government and embedding racial equity in all that we do.

On behalf of the Board and Staff, we want to thank every one who joined us for an afternoon of thought-provoking and timely dialogue. We look forward to another outstanding 40 years of working together.
