Nutter to Host Boston Philanthropic Roundtable 2018 Annual LuncheonPrint PDF
Nutter will host the 10th annual Boston Philanthropic Roundtable (BPART) luncheon on May 14. This year’s theme, “The Promising Philanthropic Opportunity in Early Childhood,” will address how emerging brain research has left little doubt that a child’s development of core skills – cognitive skills, emotional well-being, social competence, and physical and mental health – before entering kindergarten is essential in building a strong foundation for success in adulthood. As such, many philanthropists are racing to move upstream in a child’s life and to fund promising efforts to support the early development of young children. Early indicators suggest much success and opportunity in this area. Philanthropists are integrating early childhood strategies into education and anti-poverty efforts because it has been found to be critical for success later in life.
In Boston, the number of funders in early childhood is limited, so there are many opportunities for philanthropists to define the landscape here. If you or your clients are interested in education, poverty, and positive outcomes for young children, then this issue is critical to the success of your programs.
BPART is a study group comprised of a variety of professionals and philanthropists from both the for-profit and non-profit sectors in Boston. For over five years, BPART has delivered valuable content to advisors, charities, and philanthropists, along with an opportunity to network with others who have a shared interest in philanthropy.
