Give the Gift of Membership

Are you looking for that perfect gift for a woman you know? Friends, wives, mothers, daughters, and employees are among our current members who have been recipients of a Gift Membership in The Philanthropy Connection. You do not have to be a TPC member to give a Gift Membership… although sharing the TPC experience certainly is a lot of fun!


Having my TPC membership sponsored has been an enormous gift. I have gained so much more beyond the monetary value. My time with TPC will continue to bolster my career and add color to my personal life for years to come. I’ve gained leadership experience and now sit on TPC’s Board, and philanthropic knowledge with increased awareness of local issues and non-profit organizations. Most importantly, I have acquired a network of amazing, talented, and generous women I now count among my friends. My mentor may not even realize how much she has gifted me with her sponsorship – but I’ll make an effort to let her know!

Dues are $1,175 for sponsoring a member over 35 years old, and $575 for sponsoring a member 35 and under.

100% of a Gift Membership is tax deductible.


Support a TPC Fellow

Young people don’t usually get a seat at the table where big decisions are made, but TPC’s fellowship changed that for me. I received not only a holistic and transparent view into how social projects get funded, but also exposure to experiences and people who helped me formulate my own perspective on what kind of philanthropic system we as a society should be working toward. After my fellowship ended, I opted to stay a member because TPC embodies the kind of system I believe is most effective – incorporating numerous and diverse voices, marrying rigorous debate and strong due diligence with tremendous compassion, and proving that even a little can go a long way when we come together.

In order to support and encourage the next generation of women philanthropists, The Philanthropy Connection provides Fellowships to women between the ages of 18 and 35 who are interested in becoming part of the women’s collective giving movement, but cannot afford the $575 membership donation. As TPC’s reputation has grown, we receive many more Fellowship applications each year than we can fund. Fellowships, which are tax deductible and may be sponsored by members and non-members, are made possible by donations of $575.  Learn more about TPC’s current Fellows.
