We're excited you have decided to apply to the 2023-24 Institute for Emerging Philanthropist. Through the Institute, participants are exposed to the critical needs in Summit and Medina counties. The class teaches innovative, evidence-based methods of practicing strategic philanthropy, while connecting with a network of highly motivated charitable professionals. This structured program helps participants identify their personal philanthropic goals and develop plans for a lifelong commitment to improve our community. The program culminates in a graduation ceremony where students announce the grants their class has awarded based on their training.
