Be a Friend: Support Member Education Programs and Administration

The Philanthropy Connection welcomes and is grateful for donations from individuals, foundations, businesses, and corporations, to help underwrite our member education programs and to offset our administrative expenses. We call our non-member supporters Friends of The Philanthropy Connection.

100% of a Friends of The Philanthropy Connection donation is tax deductible.


Support a TPC Fellow

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, so has demand and competition for these Fellowships; each year we receive many more applications from young women than we can fund.

Fellowships are made possible by donations of $575. You do not have to be a TPC member to support a Fellowship.  To learn more about TPC’s current Fellows, click here.

100% of a TPC Fellowship Fund donation is tax deductible.


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!

$1,125 for sponsoring a member over 35 years old and $575 for sponsoring a member 35 and under ($25 discount if you donate with a personal or donor-advised fund check).

100% of a Gift Membership is tax deductible.
