INNOVATIONS: A GrantStation Forum on Philanthropy
"Our forum is inspired by 16 years of GrantStation's work with the country's leading grantmakers and nonprofits of all sizes, from small, grassroots organizations to large, international associations."
-- Cynthia Adams, GrantStation Founder, President & CEO

Building upon GrantStation’s first 20 years working in partnership with funders across the country, we have created our first-ever forum, Innovations 2016. Our goal is to bring together leaders in the field to share dynamic ideas and bold approaches that will help you transform your strategic vision, accelerate your timeline and amplify your impact. The daylong event combines thought-provoking conversations and 5-minute Ignite talks with time for networking with colleagues. Learn from and collaborate with foundation, corporate and nonprofit visionaries to discuss the most transformative innovations shaping philanthropy. Come join the conversation at this exciting one-day Forum in the heart of Greenwich Village.
