July 16 - July 18, 2018 | Boston, Massachusetts

The Forum’s 2018 Annual Conference will be the nation’s largest gathering of regional and national philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs)

#ForumCon18 will bring together the leadership and staff of all PSOs working to advance, inform and support the nation’s philanthropic sector. It’s the only conference where we can delve into our unique role as CEOs and staff of regional and national PSOs, connect with others in similar roles, and explore how we can work together to increase philanthropy’s impact.

The conference will focus on two major themes: advancing racial equity, diversity and inclusion in philanthropy; and advancing partnership and collaboration in philanthropy; focusing on the role for PSOs in this work. You’ll be inspired by a roster of engaging keynote speakers; build your skills in key functional areas for PSOs; have plenty of structured and informal time to network with your peers; and have several opportunities to explore the vibrant and historic city of Boston.
