Join Philanthropy Southwest President & CEO Tony Fundaro and your peers across the region for a two-day CEO Fly-In event in Bentonville, AR. This event is invitation-only for PSW foundation member Presidents, CEOs, Executive Directors, and Managing Directors. Special thanks to the Walton Family Foundation for underwriting this event.



At Philanthropy Southwest, we believe that collaboration is the key to impactful, connected philanthropy. Together, we can do more than we can on our own.

That’s why we’re launching a brand-new program: the CEO Fly-In. 

This event offers a unique experience for philanthropy leaders across the Southwest to network, discuss challenges, and discover solutions to shared concerns.

Together, we’ll experience the work of the Walton Family Foundation in northwest Arkansas, learn from each other, and build a thriving Southwest.

A nominal registration fee of $150 will be charged to help cover administrative costs. All other expenses are underwritten, including accommodations, meals, transportation, experiences, and event content.

A registration link will be sent after you submit your RSVP.
