Donor Pre-Conference

October 23 2019
Location: Orea Hotel Pyramida, Prague

Global Philanthropy Project Donor Pre-Conferences bring together key public and private grantmakers, donor governments, high net wealth individual donors, philanthropic thought leaders, and other partners within the LGBTI movement to develop strategies responding to current trends and opportunities. We aim to foster a shared understanding of the needs of the field, and identify and encourage opportunities for alignment, collaboration, and learning as donors.

This is a private gathering for grantmakers.
This is a non-solicitation event.

Please note: more information coming soon about additional grantmaker reception/events.

Emerging themes for the day at this year’s Donor Pre-Conference may include:

  • Immigration, migration, refugee status, and asylum seekers
  • Children’s Rights
  • Health and Wellness
  • Economic Participation
  • Shrinking Space/ Fight for Democracy/ Defense of Open Space

***Due to space, the Donor Pre-Conference is limited to 40 people


This year, the European LGBTI movement will meet in
Prague, Czech Republic from 23-27 October with the theme “Stronger Together.”
