The 2024 experience includes:

    • hone your leadership skills through Harvard’s Adaptive Leadership method
    • refine your individual philanthropic purpose
    • meet some of the most impactful social entrepreneurs and philanthropists
  • meetings and networking events with philanthropists from across the region
  • access to our alumni network and activities

In the words of our alumni:

Philanthropy for Impact is a space for mental gymnastics. It encourages critical thinking and presents tough challenges, which ultimately provide us with important and unforgettable lessons. If you are ready for an adventure that will stay with you for a long time – where you establish close relationships, activate critical thinking and learn about adaptive leadership – Philanthropy for Impact is for you. You will learn about adaptive leadership, disequilibrium, community, peer-to-peer, social entrepreneurship. — Ewa Voelkel-Krokowicz, Owner and CEO of Concordia Design

The Learning Journey was truly enlightening. I was surrounded by like-minded, humble and genuine individuals, all striving for impactful change. The top-tier faculty showed us how to connect the dots in our philanthropic endeavors, blending theory and practice seamlessly. The programme’s systemic approach not only deepened my understanding, but also underscored the value of collaborative efforts when it comes to having a lasting impact. — Piotr Augustyniak, Founder and CEO of Nash Concept Group

The Learning Journey is the perfect experience for people who are already advanced in their careers and committed to philanthropy. By taking you out of the daily grind, the programme gives you a chance to ’zoom out’, focus, and reexamine your plans to make them more impactful and produce real systemic change. Classes with Harvard faculty and shared experience with peers is both intellectually emotionally rewarding. This programme will give leaders who feel ’lonely at the top’ knowledge, inspiration and energy. — Hanna Waśko, Founder and CEO of Big Picture
