Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands (PPCI) is pleased to announce that its annual Philanthropy Day on Cape Cod will take place virtually on Tuesday, November 9, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
Join professionals from non-profit organizations on Cape Cod and the Islands, their volunteers Join other professionals from the comfort of your own home or office. Attendees from non-profit organizations on Cape Cod and the Islands, their volunteers and board members, as well as professional advisors attend the premier philanthropy conference on Cape Cod via their computers to share current best practices in fundraising and celebrate charitable giving.
While the event was originally slated to be held in-person, due to an increased number of COVID cases in the area, the group has opted to hold it virtually for the health and safety of attendees, presenters, and special partners. The online event will include virtual networking opportunities and TWO powerful keynote speakers: Ashley Stanley of Lovin’ Spoonfuls and Annie Knickman Plancher of Social Finance.
Ashley Stanley is the founder of Lovin’ Spoonfuls, an organization that has rescued and brought more than 21 million pounds of fresh, healthy food into the social service stream across Massachusetts in the last 10 years. She will present “Leadership Now: Before and After COVID Changed Everything.” Ashley has created unparalleled awareness for food rescue, with a dedication to hunger relief, climate change, and health equity.
Annie Knickman Plancher is the Vice President of Staff and Strategy at Social Finance, a national impact finance and advisory nonprofit working with public, private, and social sectors to build innovative partnerships and investments that measurably improve lives. Annie will address the opportunities for nonprofits created by the growing interest in investing simultaneously for both financial return and philanthropic goals.
Abigail Schneider is an Associate at Social Finance, supporting the impact investing and advisory services teams.
Abigail previously was the Director of Partnerships at Bhamstrong, the City of Birmingham’s COVID-19 response team. While there, she built their workforce development program, which rapidly re-employed individuals facing economic insecurity due to the pandemic. Before joining Bhamstrong, Abigail was the founding executive director of the Jefferson County Memorial Project, a non-profit focusing on racial and criminal justice reform in Alabama.
PPCI strives to keep the registration fees low to allow our local non-profits an affordable means of attending, especially this year. The cost of attend is $35 for PPCI members and $50 for non-members. Registration is open.
The keynote addresses and networking opportunities are designed to benefit each and every staff member, trustee and volunteer in our community. The fact that the event sells out every year proves there is a need for helping our local organizations. This event is not possible without the financial contributions of sponsors. Special thank you to Premier Sponsor: Cape Cod Five.
