This off‐the‐record, invitation-only conversation will provide current and potential grantmakers an opportunity to:

  • Meet other private and corporate philanthropic leaders in the global safe drinking water, sanitation, and health sector
  • Learn from experts on better collaboration, leveraging of public relations, and cost-effective giving practices
  • Exchange best, worst, and promising practices in grantmaking
  • Learn about innovations in access to capital and social entrepreneurship
  • Look for collaborative opportunities between and among private and corporate foundations, water sector experts, and the public sector 

At this year’s event, there will be a unique opportunity to discuss new leadership plans for the Network, and special guest speakers who will answer questions surfaced in previous meetings. A full agenda will follow.
