Wyoming Philanthropy Days is a bi-annual conference which brings together non-profit leaders, philanthropists and professional advisers from across the state to learn and share best practices. As part of the event, the Newell Sargent Award is given to a Wyomingite for their distinguished legacy as a philanthropist and the inaugural >President’s Award will be given to an individual who has made significant, voluntary investment to increasing the capacity of the Wyoming Community Foundation.

The 2014 event will also celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Wyoming Community Foundation, which has grown to over $100 million in funds under investment and millions in annual funding to communities across our state.

WPD's program for 2014 includes dynamic national speakers Janet Topolsky and Steve Patrick from the Aspen Institute and Teju Ravilochan from the Unreasonable Institute, as well as successful non-profit leaders and philanthropists from across Wyoming. The event will close with the RED (Retired Extremely Dangerous) Panel including former US Senator Alan Simpson, and former governors Dave Freudenthal and Mike Sullivan in a free wheeling discussion of 25 years of philanthropy in Wyoming.

WPD will also have a Trusted Advisors Seminar open to professionals who advise individuals in estate planning. It is open to attorneys, bankers, accountants, financial planners and other advisors who are entrusted with helping families leave lasting legacies. CLE and CEU will be offered for this track of learning.
