The Civic Innovators Forum will be held on September 16 form 9:30-6:00 at the Newseum in Washington, DC. The day will begin with the Case Foundation hosting a discussion on the role of citizen-centered participation in cultivating civic engagement in communities and developing solutions to society’s pressing problems. Over lunch, we’ll discuss the role of the corporate sector in addressing community problems and the evolution of corporate citizenship. Then, Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement will host members of the last four Presidential administrations to discuss how they have worked with the field of philanthropy on a civic engagement agenda and what this evolving relationship should look like.

We’ll end the day with a fun reception hosted by SplashLife in which we will discuss how to support and empower the pro-social Millennial generation and its over-abundance of extraordinary but largely untapped talent to help rebuild the American dream.
