The Moonridge Foundation announced Aug. 23 it will virtually host the 10th annual Philanthropy Leaders Summit on Sept. 17 from 8:30-11:30 a.m.

In previous years, the Nevada-based summit occurred as separate in-person events in Reno and Las Vegas; this year, the foundation and sponsors are partnering for one summit to occur virtually.

This year’s theme, “United in Resilience,” will focus on the philanthropic landscape throughout Nevada and beyond, according to an Aug. 23 press release.

“From the global health crisis and the economic crisis that followed, to social justice movements, climate emergencies, widespread mental health issues and more, it is crucial now more than ever for funders to strengthen the impact of their giving strategies,” according to the release. “For this, The Moonridge Foundation has selected a diverse portfolio of speakers to share about community impact, with efforts to inspire funders to continue engaging philanthropically with the efforts that resonate with their values.”
