Conference on Charitable Giving: Thank you to all involved!

SVCF would like to thank all the sponsors, speakers and attendees that came to the Conference on Charitable Giving in May at Stanford University. We partnered with Stanford’s Office of Planned Giving to present this year’s great line-up, which included our own Mari Ellen Loijens speaking about gifting complex assets and Rebecca Dupras speaking about the basics of real estate gifts.
We extend thanks to our lead sponsor for the conference, Wells Fargo, as well as to sponsors, Silicon Valley Bank, Wetherby Asset Management and Seiler LLP. We also thank Jennifer Aaker, General Atlantic Partners Professor in Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, who gave a moving presentation on the power of story. More than 260 people attended this year’s conference, which draws professionals from around the region to learn about developments and emerging practices in philanthropic advising.
