The Nonprofit Institute’s 7th Annual State of Nonprofits and Philanthropy Summit, is happening on Friday, October 18th on the University of San Diego campus.
Join University of San Diego faculty and researchers to examine the state of San Diego’s nonprofit and philanthropic sector. Hear the results of our 2019 Leader Survey. Challenge the status quo through lively dialog with public, private, and social sector leaders. Explore important trends in philanthropic giving and donor behavior, public trust, and the ongoing impact of public policy on nonprofits.
A special Bridge Talks (Bridging Research and Practice) segment will highlight the current work of USD nonprofit researchers and provide implications for practice.
