About the Symposium

September 8-10, 2021

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 are pleased to announce that the second Innovations in International Philanthropy Symposium will be held virtually on September 8-10, 2021. We will bring 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 will support 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.
