ACT for Alexandria


Thank you for joining ACT for Alexandria at the 10th annual IMPACT: Innovation + Philanthropy Forum. 


IMPACT convenes board, business, City, community and nonprofit leaders to discuss innovations in philanthropy and strategies for building the capacity of nonprofit organizations and individuals to make a lasting impact in the community.  This year, we were so pleased to have Patty Stonesifer, President & CEO of Martha's Table and Founding CEO of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as the keynote speaker as well as breakout sessions on executive coaching, working with the media and stewarding donors. Thank you to all of our fantastic speakers and panelists, our volunteers, and to First Baptist Church for hosting the forum. Thank you also to IMPACT sponsor, Capital One Bank and breakout session sponsors, Six Half Dozen : Design Studio, Keith Burner, Senior Vice President-Wealth Management at Morgan Stanley and Speck-Caudron Investment Group of Wells Fargo Advisors, and of course, to the nearly 300 attendees.
