Northern California Grantmakers (NCG) and Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP) invite you to attend a panel that will highlight a range of philanthropic approaches to encourage partnerships across multiple generations.  

Come join us to:
  • increase awareness of the spaces where emerging leaders are having these conversations so that participants can "plug in" where they see most value and relevancy;
  • expand awareness of how intergenerational structures can highlight emerging leaders' perspectives for the benefit of the organization; and
  • explore the challenges and opportunities for meaningful intergenerational engagement within organizations and across the nonprofit sector
Target Audience:
This program is free to all members of Northern California Grantmakers and/or members of Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy.
