In accordance with the latest state and citywide ordinances regarding public gatherings, the Philanthropy California team has decided to transform our in-person 2020 Policy Summit into a virtual gathering that will remain scheduled for April 20, 2020. 

Our virtual Summit now allows us to host more people than before, and we encourage you to invite your colleagues! All future registrations for the Summit will have pay-what-you-like pricing, and all contributions will go toward supporting the work of Philanthropy California in responding to the current crisis. Please select a price before registering.

As we face a global pandemic, we believe it is more important than ever for our philanthropic and civic leaders to convene and discuss the policy solutions that will have the greatest impact on the lives of all Californians. Philanthropy has the opportunity to amplify community-led initiatives, play an active role in civic engagement, and leverage government collaborations during this moment of crisis. Now is the time to work rapidly to address our state’s most immediate needs, and also to begin thinking about the long-term efforts and policies that will ensure a thriving and equitable future for California. 

Presented in partnership with the California Budget & Policy Center, the 2020 Philanthropy California Policy Summit will immerse leaders in a day-long in-depth look at the latest policies and issues impacting the state. The gathering will be filled with candid and timely conversations about philanthropy’s role in changing systems and strengthening communities. Participants will learn of growing opportunities for alignment in public-private collaboration to translate bold visions into powerful impact.

Don’t miss your chance to participate in what promises to be an energetic and solutions-focused summit of philanthropic and civic leaders. Join over 300 of your statewide colleagues to learn from each other and build alliances to envision a better future for California.

To that end, we are closely monitoring all updates on the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak and closely following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Currently, there are no restrictions on domestic travel to or from Los Angeles, and there are no public health recommendations to avoid large gatherings in the city. Based on this current public health information, the 2020 Policy Summit is planned to go on as scheduled. Rest assured that Philanthropy California will be taking every precaution to provide a safe and healthy environment at the summit. We will continue to share the latest updates and any changes as they occur. If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to contact us directly.
