Educational Opportunities

Silicon Valley Community Foundation hosts a number of educational events and seminars throughout the year to assist professional advisors on topics relating to charitable giving and your clients’ philanthropy.

We offer engaging lectures, dynamic panels and seasoned experts from around the country who provide fresh insight on strategies to work with high net worth individuals and their families on how to maximize their charitable giving.

One of our signature events, the Conference on Charitable Giving, is co-produced by Silicon Valley Community Foundation and Stanford University’s Office of Planned Giving and is held each May at the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center at Stanford. Click here to read more about the conference and find out how to contact us to be added to our mailing list for an invitation to next year’s event.

If you have attended an event hosted by the community foundation or have referred a client to us, we invite you to join our Valley Council Advisors. In addition to seminars, trainings and networking opportunities throughout the year, there is also an annual recognition event for which members of this group receive a special invitation to have lunch with the community foundation’s CEO and president and leadership staff.
