Numerous studies have pointed out the critical role of philanthropy in communities—not only in supporting the social sector, but also in creating a culture of civic engagement, caring, and trust. But how do you build a culture of philanthropy? Building a culture and tradition of philanthropy for an independent school community is a massive undertaking, but it is vital. 


Join members of AIMS for a critical discussion on strategies for building a culture of philanthropy.

AIMS Members: $40 (through October 29th) or $50 (After October 29th)
NON AIMS Members: $80 (through October 29th) or $90 (After October 29th)


Please note that NO REFUNDS will be issued for cancellations for this class after November 2nd.
