Why Join?

Networking & Peer Communities

Change demands a spark. 

Networking is where flint meets fuel. IPA kindles real growth by fostering connections among our members and cross-sector partners. Through our multiple monthly gatherings, you can share ideas with someone in your area, pick the brain of an expert on the other side of the state, or discover best practices with like-minded professionals in in-person or virtual formats. Your networking options are deep and diverse, but with one common element: you’ll come away from every interaction fully energized for the possibilities ahead.   

Education & Support

Your bedrock at the grassroots.

Today’s philanthropic landscape looks different than it did one, five or ten years ago. Whether because of recessions, a pandemic, or shifts in national and local leadership, giving’s tectonic plates are always shifting. IPA membership offers solid ground. Our education, leadership development, and best and next practices programming ensure our members are always informed and prepared for whatever the future brings.

Advocacy & Public Policy

You move the world. We’ll be your lever.

Your focus is the people and communities you serve. There’s not much time left over for educating stakeholders, opinion leaders, and lawmakers. IPA membership gives you an advocate—lots of them, actually. We work for you, making your voice heard and shaping philanthropy-friendly and community public policy at all levels of government.
