The 2018 Innovations in International Philanthropy Symposium was a major philanthropic event in the Boston area, attracting donors and funders throughout New England and beyond. The Symposium was designed to contribute to the field of global philanthropy by offering participants from a range of philanthropic backgrounds an opportunity to network, learn from each other's efforts and the most recent trends and opportunities in international philanthropy, and gain practical, hands-on skills that can help donors and funders increase the impact of their giving. Our goal is to bring together a diverse set of funders and to create opportunities for participants to inspire and learn from each other.
