Black Tie International:
Connect Summit

connect summot banner

 Please find below a statement from Thrive Philanthropy. We would ask that you consider publishing the statement in its entirety. We will not be responding to requests for interviews and are responding by statement. 


May 29th 2020-We deeply regret the circumstances surrounding the Connect Summit. Miscommunication from Thrive Philanthropy led to keynote speakers being publicized before they had officially committed to participating in our virtual conference.


We were hopeful and optimistic that we would be able to confirm these speakers and were in the process of determining their interest. I understand the disappointment and concerns of all involved with the conference. It was not our intention to mislead the public, and I am sincerely sorry for the confusion this has caused. All admissions to the conference have been paused and the one ticket that was sold has been refunded, although I understand this does not minimize this error in judgement. 


The Connect Summit was organized as a platform for philanthropic organizations to come together virtually to plan for the future. Following discussions with our confirmed panelists and project partners, we will re-evaluate the appropriateness of continuing with the Connect Summit and provide an update on the future of the event in the coming days. 


2020 Connect Summit,

A two-day virtual event  June 23 & 24  2020


 The Connect Summit is designed as a platform where questions raised will help organizations make more informed decisions about the future.


As this decade sees philanthropy at a pivotal point, the evolving geopolitical landscape, the rapid creation of new wealth and a greater awareness of how philanthropy can create social change have already led to exciting innovation and new thinking. This is influencing approaches to giving and the implementation of social responsibility initiatives across the world.
