Launched in 2004, the Yale Philanthropy Conference is a student-run convening held at the Yale School of Management, and host to philanthropic and nonprofit leaders who seek to tackle the social sector's most pressing challenges.


Friday, February 22

At its core, philanthropy is driven by values. Philanthropists put money behind their ideals by investing in leaders and organizations, and ultimately hope to leave a lasting positive impact for future generations. But is the philanthropic sector living up to its potential? Does it truly embody its values in grantmaking and beyond?

At YPC 2019, we’re exploring the bold, creative, and thoughtful ways philanthropists are realizing their values—not only in what they fund, but how they fund it. Examining funder-grantee relationships, diversity and representation in the sector, the role of corporate philanthropy, and more, YPC 2019 will delve into how philanthropy can walk the talk and amplify its impact on society.
