By April 29, 2022

We’ve created this year’s Nonprofit Summit especially with you in mind. So when we say that there is truly something for everyone, we mean it.

There will be no shortage of inspiration from our keynote speakers, fun engagement online and via our mobile app, thought-provoking discussions, and a wealth of valuable takeaways, like practical tips from world-renowned experts. Registration is now open! Join us on May 17 and 18 for the second annual Nonprofit Summit.

We promise that this year’s Summit will help you craft better relationships with the people who care about your cause and build a stronger foundation to thrive, no matter what’s next. Don’t believe me? Here are five reasons this is the must-attend nonprofit event of the year:

#1: One of the Best Mainstage Lineups Ever

The Nonprofit Summit 2022 mainstage lineup is shaping up to be one that we promise you won’t want to miss. Take a look at what we have in store for the mainstage sessions:

Feeding Community and Fueling Hope

A meal is so much more than a plate of food. During a crisis it can be medicine, comfort, or hope. World Central Kitchen (WCK) is often first to the frontlines to provide meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. By embracing flexibility, building deep relationships, and leveraging powerful technology, this global nonprofit establishes resilient food systems, empowering communities to feed themselves.

Join journalist, philanthropist, and CEO, Soledad O’Brien, for a thought-provoking conversation with humanitarian and founder of WCK, Chef José Andrés, as they discuss the power of a good meal to reignite, maintain, and grow a community.

Activism in a Digital-First World

What can we do? As Jane Fonda writes in her new book, What Can I Do? My Path from Climate Despair to Action, we can create a collective impact when we join forces together. Thanks to our tech-centric society, digital relationships are here — the challenge is leveraging the data they generate to drive meaningful climate action at scale.

In this special conversation — Activism in a Digital First World, about creating a sustainable future — tune in to hear’s Chief Engagement Officer, Cristina Jones, and Academy Award-winning actor and political activist, Jane Fonda, in conversation with youth organizer, activist, and storyteller Daphne Frias, alongside international climate activist Tori Tsui.

The Future of Funding: Expanding Partnerships with Foundations

The nature of giving has changed, favoring deeper and longer-lasting relationships between foundations and nonprofits over individual donations. With the increased interest, however, there are also different views of what these relationships entail, and how to achieve them. Ford Foundation president Darren Walker and Associate Dean for Research and International Programs of Indiana University’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, Dr. Una Osilli, discuss how foundations can empower nonprofits to invest and thrive in this evolving landscape.
