2018 Innovation Conference

Silicon Valley Community Foundation has decided to cancel our Innovation Conference, which had been scheduled for September 16-18, 2018, in San Francisco.

We did not arrive at this decision lightly, and we understand that it will be disappointing news for those who planned to attend. SVCF will provide a full refund of your registration, and we apologize for any inconvenience this decision causes.

Silicon Valley Community Foundation will host the second Innovation Conference Sept. 16-18, 2018, in magnificent San Francisco.

The conference will bring together philanthropists, grantmakers, foundations and technology thought leaders to address the significant ways that artificial intelligence (AI) is affecting our society and impacting the communities we serve.

How AI Impacts Community

Sunday, Sept. 16 - Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018
Palace Hotel, San Francisco


SVCF’s inaugural Innovation Conference in 2016 featured enriching conversations and learning opportunities shared by more than 300 people from eight countries. We look forward to building upon those outcomes at the 2018 conference, which will look at the impacts of AI on various issues related to education, health, jobs and the economy, and place (agriculture, environmental conservation, smart cities and more).
