About Philanthropy Forum

Philanthropy Forum brings Greater Peterborough’s non-profit sector together for professional development and networking, with workshops covering everything from volunteer recruitment to donor retention, and presentations from some of Canada’s top talent. We have made new connections through great conversations with the dynamic and diverse people who make up our local non-profit sector, and together we have been working collectively to strengthen the charitable organizations in our community.

Philanthropy Forum is on hiatus for 2017.
