The Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy


Attendees at Maine Immigrant Integration event

The Sillerman Center designs, coordinates and hosts a variety of events, both here at the Heller School and beyond. Our events range from lectures and panel discussions that feature practitioners of social justice philanthropy to convenings of social justice practitioners and philanthropists to smaller briefings where grantmakers learn from subject-matter experts, from community-based leaders and from each other. We also co-sponsor and collaborate on events organized and hosted by nonprofit organizations and grantmakers across the country. If you are seeking co-sponsorship for a philanthropy-related event, please write to Linda Lee, Sillerman Center Department Coordinator.
