APAF to join Graham Pelton Panel: Society in Crisis


Society in Crisis: How Philanthropy Can Change Narratives and Bridge Divides.

Join us for this robust panel discussion examining how nonprofits, corporations and foundations can change the narrative and drive critical change in society through philanthropy. 

We are delighted to partner on this important panel event taking place this November in Washington, DC, co-sponsored by the Association Foundation Group, the American Psychiatric Association Foundation, Graham-Pelton Consulting, and Fenton Communications.
Society in Crisis: How Philanthropy Can Change Narratives and Bridge Divides.
In our increasingly polarized society, key issues like health care, retirement, immigration, jobs, and education (to name a few) are at risk. At a time when politics seem to only foster uncertainty, fear, and divisiveness throughout our nation, corporations and nonprofits have the opportunity – and even the responsibility – to bring people together in a way that will drive change and move society forward.
This panel of nonprofit, foundation, and corporate leaders will discuss the important role philanthropy plays in bridging divides and advancing society through their own, first-hand experience. We will explore the responsibility of both the nonprofit and the corporation, the inherent obstacles and challenges, and innovative solutions to achieve the seemingly impossible. The event features:

  • American Psychiatric Association Foundation, Daniel Gillison, Executive Director
  • Community Trust: Cheryl Hughes, Senior Director, Civic Engagement
  • Knight Foundation: Lilly Weinberg, Director, Community Foundations
  • Graham-Pelton, Elizabeth Zeigler, President and CEO
  • National Park Foundation: Will Shafroth, President and CEO
  • UnidosUS: Delia de la Vara, Sr. Vice President, Resource Development and Special Initiatives
  • Whole Kids Foundation, founded by Whole Foods: Nona Evans, Executive Director

When:            Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 8 a.m. Breakfast,
                        Panel starts at 8:30 a.m.
Where:           The National Press Club
