About the Symposium

September 7-8, 2023
In-person in Cambridge, MA

Building on the success of the first (2018) and second (2021) Innovations in International Philanthropy Symposium, the Network of Engaged International Donors (NEID Global) and The Philanthropic Initiative’s Center for Global Philanthropy are preparing to host the third Symposium in Cambridge, MA on September 7-8, 2023 (with virtual viewing options for keynote sessions). As with the previous two events, we will bring together donors, foundations, companies, and investors who are actively engaged in international philanthropy and seeking to propel forward the capacity and impact of their globally minded work. The past Symposiums 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.
