Conference In Person

TOGETHER – PFC’s 25th Anniversary Conference

23 - 25 September 2024 / Registration Open

Mark your calendars and get ready for PFC’s upcoming National Conference, taking place on September 23-25, 2024 at the Westin in Ottawa! 

Marking PFC’s 25th anniversary, this conference in 2024 will be our biggest one yet – bringing members, friends, partners, and leaders in the sector together to share, learn, and explore new ideas for how philanthropy can tackle the urgent challenges of our times. We believe in the power of learning, exchange, and collective action, and this event will be a catalyst for change and growth.

Designing our conference together – in the spirit of One Drum!

As a conference by our network for our network, we are prioritizing member engagement and will be creating spaces for our community to collaborate and contribute to the experience at different steps along the way. Read more about our approach here.

What you can expect

Based on feedback from previous conferences, this is what we already expect to offer:

  • Pragmatic, responsive, and collaborative approaches through member participation in conference design and presentation
  • Engagement and meaningful impact through multiple learning environments led by one another and sector leaders
  • Content mix of basics, best practices, reflection, and critical approaches, through three cross-cutting streams of key interest to the philanthropic community
  • Inclusive, respectful, and equitable representation in speakers, facilitators, and session design, ensuring they represent the breadth and diversity of our country
  • Authentic space to learn from and support Indigenous-led and Indigenous-serving philanthropy
  • Ample opportunity for one-on-one and informal networking and connection to facilitate ongoing collaboration and impact

Stay tuned for more details

Be on the lookout for more opportunities to provide input, registration information, and the conference agenda, which will be released in the coming months. We can’t wait to see you in Ottawa next September and celebrate 25 years together, and many more to come! 

Save the date in your calendar, spread the word, and start getting into the “spirit of One Drum” by co-creating the program with us, and let’s keep working together to strengthen Canadian philanthropy for a just, equitable, and sustainable world.
