The Giving Summit™ explores and celebrates giving in its myriad forms, including volunteering, philanthropy and social enterprise. The COVID-19 pandemic has created a climate of uncertainty for everyone, yet, we have also witnessed acts of generosity and kindness across our community. Through the Giving Summit’s virtual programs, we examine how we can make a difference, especially in the lives of the most vulnerable among us, in these challenging times.

Take a look at our 2020 Giving Summit here.
