May 5, 2022

Annual Philanthropy Tech Conference Returns

After nearly three years, the annual conference for technology-related topics in philanthropy returns this November in San Antonio, TX. Hosted by the Technology Association of Grantmakers (TAG), the TAG conference is the premiere place for thoughtful conversation and meaningful network building, attracting technology leaders and practitioners from private, family, and community foundations in North America, the UK, and EU.

Mark your calendars for November 14-17, 2022 in San Antonio, TX and join the #philanthropytech event of the decade.

“The value of sharing our collective knowledge, expertise, and passion cannot be underestimated,” notes conference co-chair Brian Yim Lim, Programme Manager at the Wellcome Trust. “This November, TAG2022 will remind us just how valuable being in the same room as your peers truly is, and how that can spark innovation in a way that virtual can’t match.”

Registration opens in August and attendance will be limited to 375 attendees in order to facilitate a collegial atmosphere for knowledge exchange and networking. Those looking to book their stay at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio in advance of registration can do so on the TAG2022 event website.
