Info Session: Why Building Together 2024 Is the Place to Be

In a society marked by mistrust and division, we at the Council believe philanthropy has an opportunity to show up differently: by seeing our differences as assets, not obstacles, and finding solutions together. That journey begins at our annual sector event, Building Together, happening May 6-9 in Chicago.
