2018 Member Day

We were thrilled to welcome over 100 of our longtime and new Legacy members for rich philanthropic conversations at this year’s Member Day, Member Dinner, and Annual Meeting in September!


Fireside Chat with Scott Kriens, 1440 Multiversity

Denise Chilow interviewed Legacy member Scott Kriens about his personal and professional journey and the path he’s navigated from Juniper Networks to the creation of 1440 Multiversity.

Conversation with Daniel Kraft, M.D.
Daniel Kraft took members on a deep dive into: “The Future of Health & Medicine: Where Can Technology Take Us?” We enjoyed a rich dialogue around trends in exponential medicine and the global impact of a changing health & wellness landscape.

Plenty Vertical Farming: a Revolution in Food Access
Nate Storey and Tara Kriese of Plenty shared with us about their company’s innovative model that’s reinventing American agriculture. Not only was the conversation fascinating, members also got the chance to taste the incredible flavors of Plenty produce.

Get a Little Help From Your Friends
Curious why her chair is turned? One of the most engaging aspects of Member Day was a collaborative afternoon activity we called “Wise Friends.” Members enjoyed sharing the challenges they face in philanthropy and received extremely helpful peer feedback. Topics ranged from mental health, to board governance, to messaging around polarizing topics.
