IWCF Symposium Moved to September 16, 2021

Like all of you, the IWCF Symposium Committee has been following the news and information on our current crisis. One thing we know is the next few months remain uncertain as to how we will be able to physically come together again. Prioritizing the health and safety of our community is of great importance to us all. For that reason, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our October Symposium to September 16, 2021.

Entrepreneurial Philanthropy: Celebrating Change-Making Women Past, Present, Future

Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation is thrilled to announce that Jessica Jackley, founder of KIVA, the world’s most successful microlending site and recipient of a Forbes rising star in Healthcare, Education and the Environment designation, will be the keynote speaker for the 2021 IWCF Symposium.

Her message of doing good and doing well at the same time to create a meaningful life and career will highlight our celebration of impactful women in our community.

Jackley is the author of the widely praised book Clay Water Brick. Watch for more to come from the education committee about a member book club event.

Symposium daytime workshops will offer our members and guests the opportunity to learn about how local organizations are also doing good, and doing well, at the same time.

Save the date now for September 16, 2021, and get ready to join us for another day of celebration of the powerful impact of educated philanthropy. Read more about Jessica HERE.

If you have already committed to a sponsorship level, thanks so much for your advance support! Given the date change however, we are asking our sponsors and table purchasers to do one of two things as we prepare for next year’s Symposium. We would be happy to hold onto your sponsorship and table registration and apply them to the 2021 event, or provide you with a full refund for your current year’s fees. Please contact Molly Harder with any questions at blackab1@yahoo.com or (208) 841-2638.
