About the Symposium

September 8-10, 2021
Virtual

Building on the success of the first Innovations in International Philanthropy Symposium held in-person in September 2018, New England International Donors (NEID) and The Philanthropic Initiative’s Center for Global Philanthropy designed the second Innovations in International Philanthropy Symposium in a virtual and globally accessible format on September 8-10, 2021. We brought together donors, foundations, companies, and investors who are currently or would like to be actively engaged in international philanthropy to propel forward the capacity and impact of globally minded work. The 2021 Symposium supported the growth of strategic and collaborative international philanthropy by offering participants the opportunity to explore trends in philanthropy, gain practical skills and knowledge to increase the levels and impact of their giving across borders, learn from peers, and network with funders actively engaged in supporting international development efforts. 93 speaker and 350 participants joined us from over 25 countries across the world for our second Innovations in International Philanthropy Symposium.
