September 16 – Collaborative Philanthropy: Catalyzing the END of Neglected Tropical Diseases
11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Virtual Zoom (session will be recorded for temporary viewing)
Join us for a special presentation by Ellen Agler, Boise native and CEO of The END Fund. Despite the fact that Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) affect more than 1.7 billion of the world’s most impoverished people, END is currently the only private philanthropic initiative solely dedicated to ending the most common NTDs.
As the CEO of an organization with a distinctive and vital mission, Agler holds valuable insights regarding creating positive change through effective collaborative philanthropy — a common goal between IWCF members.
Take advantage of this unique opportunity and RSVP below to expand your perspective on collaborative philanthropy and other giving models.
