Philanthropy has emerged as an influential, global force. It increasingly shapes our business practices, policies, research agendas, values, and the way we see the world. This discussion will address current trends in philanthropy, including impact investing, for professional advisors who counsel their clients on charitable giving strategies. The discussion will also explore the characteristics and motivations of “new” philanthropists and the resources they are using to “do good” in the world.

Join us for a complimentary breakfast and program presented by Marguerite H. Griffin, senior vice president and director of philanthropic advisory services for Northern Trust. RSVP by Friday, September 21. Registration, networking, and breakfast will begin at 7:15 a.m. with the program starting at approximately 7:50 a.m. Space is limited to 40 registrants.
