NEID sponsored events are only open to NEID members and their guests unless otherwise noted. They are intended to serve as a space for donors to engage in conversation, learning, and networking without being approached for funding or services. NEID sponsored events have a strict “no solicitation” policy.
Uplifting Journeys (NEID Member) is offering a five-day immersive donor education program in Sicily, Italy combining authentic cultural experiences, workshops, site visits, and internships in local NGOs from October 9-13, 2017. The trip will examine the intersection of local and global challenges including the migrant crisis (where should I intervene?), changing mentalities in a post-mafia society (how do I know I am making a difference?), juvenile delinquency (which organization should I support?), and preserving historic & cultural heritage. No previous philanthropy experience necessary. No donations solicited. Space limited to 20 participants.
