Thank you for your interest in the Social Impact Collective. Our faculty and staff will assemble our 2019 cohort of members with an eye toward alignment with our guiding principles, commitment to social impact through personal philanthropy, passion for learning, and balance within the group.

Guiding Principles:

  • Question the Status Quo
  • Confidence Without Attitude
  • Students Always
  • Beyond Yourself

There is a one time “fee” to join the Collective, which is a $12K donation to the Center for Social Sector Leadership ($11K of which is tax deductible), which allows the Center to continue offering the Discovery Weekend on an ongoing basis. ¬†Lodging and meals for the weekend are included with Membership.

We will admit members of the Collective on a rolling basis until the cohort is full.
