You’re invited to join leaders and changemakers from nonprofits, foundations, and corporations of every size and mission at the 2016 Independent Sector Conference in Washington, D.C.

If the charitable community is to thrive, we must explore the opportunities that wait at the edges of our sector. New partnerships with other sectors. New voices energizing conversations. New ways to collaborate with each other.

Join us November 16-18, 2016, in D.C. on the heels of an historic election, at a time of significant change in the sector and the country. New frontiers await.


This year’s Independent Sector Conference will be held from November 16-18 at the Washington Hilton. New Frontiers will bring the full strength of the charitable community to the heart of American democracy.

We’ll take our messages to Capitol Hill, learn from insiders about how we can connect with the new administration, and collaborate to revitalize the ideals of democratic engagement in service of the common good. Washington is more than just a symbol of government though. It’s an unparalleled cultural center that draws inspiration equally from the nation’s founding architects and the diverse communities that call it home. It is energized by a highly-engaged local charitable community.

And it’s also Independent Sector’s hometown. We’re excited to welcome you.


The Independent Sector Conference brings together more than 1100 of the most influential leaders representing more than 650 nonprofits, foundations, and corporations nationwide. It’s the best opportunity each year to connect them to services and products that will help advance their missions.


Conference sponsorships offer foundations and corporations opportunities to further their missions and philanthropic interests while increasing their visibility to the charitable community.
