Rosso ForumWhile nonprofits compete for major gifts to advance our organizations, today’s emerging donors want to engage with broad, collaborative movements that have the power to solve society’s most urgent problems. Can Your .Org Make It In A # world? The 2019 Hank Rosso Forum will explore this theme and help YOU discover what it takes to become a change agent for 21st-century philanthropy.

This year’s Forum will again be moderated by Kay Sprinkel Grace, a leading author, speaker and thought leader in philanthropy. The Forum’s keynote speaker and facilitator is Hildy Gottlieb, co-founder and Chief Boundary Pusher at Creating the Future. Hildy will lead us in asking powerful change questions and will guide you towards becoming a catalyst for change in your organization and your community. A dynamic thought leader, Hildy is a TEDx speaker, contributor to The Huffington Post and author of Building Movements, Not Organizations in the Stanford Social Innovation Review.

The interactive portion of the Forum will be co-facilitated by Lisa Hoffman, leading nonprofit consultant, coach, and Zen priest. The Forum will also feature a panel of leaders, including Sam Cobbs, President of Tipping Point Community, Angela Jenkins, Director of Strategic Initiatives at Kaiser Permanente, and Michael Stoll, Executive Director and Editor of the San Francisco Public Press .

As donors and volunteers search for new ways to effect large-scale social change, how will you and your organization adapt and experiment with new approaches to solving our greatest issues and enriching our community experience?
