Philanthropy in Motion’s Model Foundation Program

“Innovation for Impact,” is a two-day conference which focuses on creating cross-sector solutions to long-standing social issues. Philanthropy in Motion (PIM) and Yale Center Beijing proudly invite you to come hear from over 25 thought-leaders and practitioners at the nexus of philanthropy, technology, government, and the private sector.

The conference is the culmination of a summer long program, Model Foundation (an international summer program on venture philanthropy and social innovation), which develops the skills and networks of young people to become effective change-makers and leaders in their community. Over the summer, participants have the opportunity to engage in discussions and be mentored by top leaders in the field as they manage a 20,000 USD fund to support a portfolio of impactful social organizations.

All students, young professionals, and young leaders are encouraged to attend!
