PEAK Grantmaking

Annual Conference

We’re going big with a next-level virtual conference for PEAK2021

SAVE THE DATE
Plan to join us online from May 4-13
to reconnect, strengthen our community, and examine and expand upon a pivotal and visionary year, PEAK’s 25th in existence. Across two weeks, we’ll explore how far the profession of grants management has come – its growing influence and responsibility, critical work in this moment to meet the challenges of our day, and evolving role as a change leader in philanthropy. Fees will be $125 for contributing Organization Members, $225 for Individual Members, and $325 for non-members. Registration opens in March.

CALL FOR SPEAKERS
Continuing our 25-year commitment to centering equity and community, we invite you to co-design PEAK2021 with us. Help us make this another can’t-miss learning experience for the PEAK community – and the best conference any of us will attend next year. Extended Deadline: January 25.

PEAK2020 Online

In May 2020, we hosted our first-ever virtual conference, bringing together more than a thousand grants management professionals and our partners for a series of learning and networking events around this year’s theme: Courage in Practice. PEAK2020 Online featured three keynotes, 14 breakout sessions, chapter meetings, and a Virtual Expo. The program is now available on demand.

PEAK2020 Seattle cancelled

On March 4, 2020, PEAK’s Board of Directors made the decision to cancel the PEAK2020 conference slated for March 9-11 in Seattle due to the COVID-19 outbreak – a decision based wholly on ensuring the health and safety of attendees, presenters, sponsors, exhibitors, hotel workers, and the communities to which each would have been returning.
