YPC is a new and exciting way for youth engaged in philanthropy to connect, network, and learn together.   This year we have hosted regional gatherings across the country with our final gathering in the Northwest in Seattle.  We are thrilled to partner with The Seattle Foundation to offer this day-long Northwest gathering as a post-conference to the National Forum on Family Philanthropy. With sessions geared towards youth philanthropists engaged in or excited to learn about grantmaking ages 8-24 and the adults who guide them, attendees will be able to connect with their peers and work collaboratively in a unique learning environment. Make the most of your conference experience with  breakout  sessions, networking and teambuilding opportunities, the YPC Giving Circle, and more!

The cost of registration is $50 for youth and $75 for adults. The Paramount Hotel has an exclusive rate of $210 for Youth Philanthropy Connect and rooms with 2 queen beds available.  The Grand Hyatt, the National Forum's conference hotel is across the street.

Registration is now closed.  If you have questions, please contact Katherine at 815-540-3315 or
