CHANGE Philanthropy Partners and the UNITY Summit Planning Team hope you’ll choose to join us and invest in for what’s shaping up to be our most successful UNITY Summit yet!  We look forward to seeing you in NOLA!


2017 Unity Summit:  Investing in Movements for Equity will highlight how philanthropy can align its investments along the themes of Resistance, Protection, and Empowerment.


  • Resist. United to resist forces of injustice, intolerance, and prejudice; the promotion of inequitable practices and policies. Supporting real structural and institutional CHANGE by shifting philanthropy energy and efforts towards a more inclusive and just society.

  • Protect. Secure, invest, preserve and protect the power, advocacy and lived experiences of diverse communities against infringement. Honoring gifts and cultivating qualities of individuals to expand human capital for social impact to lead movements that advance CHANGE through equity.

  • Empower. Inclusive collective engagement and facilitative process for problem-solving and decision-making which honors the wisdom of diverse communities in organizing to build collective power, a bold vision, and movement towards a shared goal to empower real CHANGE.

During the scheduling process, CHANGE Philanthropy and its partner organizations were able to identify a small range of days with shared availability. Ultimately, this meant that the Summit, September 18-22, 2017, would be held during religious holidays. We recognize that various religious traditions will be observed by many in our community during this time, while others may be unable to attend altogether on account of the timing. We are deeply committed to creating inclusive environments for our work, and we regret that the timing of the Summit will fall short of that goal. For those who do plan to attend this year, we would love your ideas to help us actively support held religious practices observed during the Summit.


Thank you for your ongoing engagement. If you would like to share any thoughts or reactions, please contact Carly Hare at  We have been deeply energized by all the excitement we've encountered around this year's CHANGE Philanthropy Unity Summit. We also wanted to acknowledge an issue that's come up around the timing of the Summit.
