QUALIFICATION: Our community of givers is composed of individuals and families who make charitable grants and contributions of more than $200,000 a year to Christian causes, or hold a reasonable expectation of reaching that level in the future. The number is not so much a fixed minimum as it is a proxy for an emerging set of questions and opportunities for givers in this territory. How to make a lasting, fruitful impact with the range, depth, and complexity of tools and resources at your disposal? How to navigate and mitigate the inevitable pitfalls? Where to find a community of peers who understand your joys and your struggles? How to thrive in singlehood or shepherd a family blessed with financial wealth? We foster friendships among givers in pursuit of Biblical wisdom and love of neighbor.

NEW FRIENDS: We hope you enjoy this community and conference so much that you can’t help telling your friends to come, too. We welcome your gift of friendship, and would be delighted to speak with anyone you recommend to us. We would reach out to hear their story and see how our community might serve them. You can share a name and the best way to reach them in the registration form, or contact Josh directly

CANCELLATION POLICY: We will refund 100% of registration fees from now through July 31, net of transaction costs outside our control. Starting August 1, we will not be refunding fees because of the expenses we incur to produce the event. However, we can provide you a letter acknowledging the amount as a donation. We make exceptions for medical emergencies. Thank you for helping us plan prudently.
