Philanthropy Convenings

The Seminar for Mid-America Foundation CEOs and the Children’s Forum are two signature convenings hosted by the Program on Philanthropy and Social Innovation. .

The Seminar for Mid-America Foundation CEOs provides foundation executives from the mid and southern parts of the country the opportunity to engage in off-the-record, in-depth conversations about the complex issues they face in an informal setting. The invitation-only seminars help to build alliances among participants making it easier for them to fund projects together or undertake other joint approaches to systemic problems in our society.

The purpose of the Aspen Children’s Forum is to build and broaden a consensus among philanthropists of all political stripes on ways to assure the health and well-being of children.
