Registration is Open
From March 21-25, 2022, we’re bringing our community together for a weeklong virtual conference centering on what it looks like to “live your PEAK.” Together, we’ll imagine how grantmaking can truly embody what PEAK stands for: Principles, Equity, Advocacy, and Knowledge. Taking inspiration from thought-provoking keynotes, interactive peer dialogues, skill-building breakouts, and networking gatherings—the PEAK2022 experience will leave attendees empowered to lead change in their organizations and the sector at large. Plus, we’ll celebrate the great city of New Orleans by infusing the experience with a NOLA vibe!
Call for Proposals
Co-create PEAK2022 with us! We invite you to submit a session proposal that will illuminate one of this year’s four learning pathways which represent what PEAK stands for: Principles, Equity, Advocacy, and Knowledge. We need your energy and insight to make our 2022 conference another can’t-miss experience for the PEAK community and the best conference any of us will attend next year!
PEAK Grantmaking offers conference scholarships to live our value of inclusivity and ensure that all grantmakers who are interested in driving equity through practice change may attend this event. If selected for a scholarship, this form will serve as your registration form.

Across eight days in May 2021, more than 1,300 philanthropy professionals gathered for an immersive virtual conference experience to reconnect with colleagues and strengthen our community. Together, we examined and expanded upon a pivotal and visionary year, and looked at 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.
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.
Two months later, 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 the theme, Courage in Practice.
