Philanthropy Institute

Each year we convene people on the edge doing unusual things—people who dream, attempt, and accomplish the remarkable. In 2016, this takes place May 1-3. For many organizations, participation in this philanthropy institute is the single most transformative element in their ability to attain dramatic breakthroughs and leaps in thinking.

The Location

We convene at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale, AZ. Nestled at the base of Pinnacle Peak, this is a place of desert magic, sun, and tranquility. Explore the golf mecca Troon North, fantastical rock formations, galleries, Desert Botanical Garden, superlative dining, and specialty shopping.

Your Team

Organizations typically participate in teams of five—including the CEO, chief development officer, board members, donors-investors, and clinical leaders. Something remarkable happens when a team journeys together and immerses into a new environment and thought space. Old limitations fall away, distractions disappear, and new ideas become more accessible. Much of what happens at the institute could not happen onsite even if the same content were replicated.

The Investment

If you are a philanthropy member, you can bring a team of five at no charge. A la carte participation for those who are not members is $10K for a team of five or $2500 for an individual. Additional team members beyond five are $1K each.
