About the program...

Advisors in Philanthropy Boston (formerly BPART) invites you to join us on September 16th for an engaging conversation on a variety of ways that philanthropists are deploying innovative strategies in support of the causes they support. We will hear from leading advisers, funders, and philanthropists on strategies that include limited liability companies (LLCs) and other alternative vehicles; funds that engage donors as investors and ‘partners’ supporting grantees with their time and talent; and the evolution and diversity of ways that individuals are collaborating through giving circles to enhance their philanthropy and experiment with new ideas.
