Be part of a video montage harnessing the power of the collective


We want to hear your story! Be a part of a special video montage at the Philanthropy Forward '21 conference on October 14 where we'll share the stories and insights from our membership network, harnessing your energy, expertise and experience.

Philanthropy remains uniquely positioned to support the intrinsic need for belonging and invest in our potential for movement-building as a sector. We know that over the last year, you have built new collaborations, adapted your work in innovative ways and come together to make extraordinary contributions to your communities in a time of crisis.

With that in mind, we ask you to turn the lens on yourself and send us a video clip answering the question: “What is the power of the collective?” that we’ll incorporate into the October 14 plenary.


How to participate

  • Film yourself on your smartphone in landscape orientation.
  • Keep the video to 30 seconds or less.
  • It does not have to be polished or set in an office – it can be a candid reflection from you in a comfortable space. And if you're in the office, offer to hold the camera for a colleague to do the same!
  • Click submit below to upload your video.
  • The rest is up to you! Just send it in before Friday, October 8 for possible inclusion in the plenary. Contact Jessica Howard with any questions.

We are stronger together and invite voices from everyone in our network. And p.s. bloopers are fun! If you want to submit more than one video, feel free!
