      "Over the years, I have taken full advantage of the Philanos Conferences, webinars, and other resources to be an informed donor and a better giving circle board member.  I have had hours of one-on-one conversations with several Philanos leaders. They always seem to have solutions or answers to my questions. Moreover, I learned about diversity, equity and inclusion and Trust-Based Philanthropy from Philanos."
