What We Offer

Connection Opportunities. It’s simple: Philanthropy Southwest builds connections among grantmakers so they may learn from and inspire each other. Opportunities occur via social media, online and phone communications and, most importantly, face-to-face meetings at Philanthropy Southwest conferences, seminars and events.  

Annual Conference. As Philanthropy Southwest's signature event, this 3-day conference draws hundreds of trustees and staff to learn from seasoned practitioners and experts from across the country and engage with their peers. The conference is held each fall at a different regional location. Information on this year’s conference can be found here

Resources. Philanthropy Southwest maintains an online resource library that provides up-to-date content and news in philanthropy, as well as expert advice on the complex issues facing today's foundations, including legal and financial topics.
