Global Philanthropists Circle Annual Members Meeting - Tuesday, May 10, 2022 - Urban Zen - New York City

The crises that face our world cannot be answered by anyone alone. 

As Synergos steps into a new strategy to highlight focus on the areas of social justice, equity, and climate change, members joined us in taking action through collaborating as a community.

This year’s GPC Annual Members Meeting brought keynote discussions on the future of philanthropy and the opportunities to connect more deeply with ourselves, each other, and our world.

We built trusted spaces to engage with fellow philanthropists in our community discussions around key areas such as racial equity, spiritual civilization, new generation philanthropy, dialogue, climate and environment, action for the Amazon and more.
