Our panel will discuss trends in philanthropy including:
Why we give.
The challenges that nonprofits face now, the challenges that they anticipate in the future, and how best to meet these challenges. 
How is philanthropy changing? 
How can we inspire increased philanthropic investment in our region?
The panel will also take questions from the audience.
Special thanks to Goucher College for generously hosting our spring 2019 event.  Our 1st Greater Baltimore Philanthropy Forum on Oct. 1 at MedStar Harbor Hospital sold-out with almost 200 registrations, Goucher College very kindly offered a much larger space – Goucher’s Kraushaar Auditorium – for our program on March 14. 
THE GREATER BALTIMORE PHILANTHROPY FORUM was established by MedStar Health and Connelly & Assoc. Fundraising as a free bi-annual educational program and networking opportunity for professional fundraisers, nonprofit staff, nonprofit board members, and those who work within the professional and volunteer philanthropy space.
MedStar Health and Connelly & Assoc. Fundraising are excited to cosponsor the launch of this innovative new forum which is intended to ultimately advance philanthropic activity across the greater Baltimore area.
