Six Degrees of Separation…Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Whatever you prefer to call it, we can all recall a time (or many) of making a close connection with someone we’ve just met.

On Friday, December 2, you are very likely to discover Six Degrees of Philanthropy between you, a member, or an organization at AFP Chicago’s Annual Meeting. Share a morning with other like-minded individuals who dare to dream, connect, and change Chicagoland through the power of philanthropy and connectivity. Be there to create new partnerships.

Dr. Una Osili, of the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and The Fundraising School IUPUI, will lead us in an exploration of the philanthropic landscape in Chicagoland.

Rounding out the program will be members of our community sharing stories of their philanthropic partnerships. These collaborations extend beyond financial support, striving to build relationships between organizations and their people – staff, volunteers, donors and those served by the mission.

Join us for a morning of inspiration (as well as a hot breakfast and boundless networking) to uncover how Six Degrees of Philanthropy greatly improves you and Chicagoland!
