The On Deck Philanthropy Forum is a community for high net-worth individuals who are at a moment of transition in their approach to giving, moving from donating reactively to developing to giving away hundreds of thousands or millions per year.
In-person gathering: dinner Friday, 10/22/21, through dinner 10/23/21.
90-minute small group gatherings 9x per year (virtual).
No. There will be an in-person gathering, Friday night through Saturday night 10/22/21 - 10/22/22 (location TBD, most likely West Coast, USA).
On Deck lives by four core guiding values, crucial to the culture we strive to foster in the community:
* Service: On Deck is bigger than any one person. For this community to thrive, it must be driven by a spirit of service to others. Be generous with your time, knowledge, and support. Karma has a way of finding its way back.
* Sacredness: By default, everything is off the record. Many in this group are searching for something deeper in their lives or making big transitions, and others may not yet have publicly shared this with friends, family, or employers. Please honor that, and avoid sharing anything you learn about each other without explicit permission.
* Respect: You are all now part of the On Deck family. You’re all embarking on what will surely be a rollercoaster of a journey — but you’re in this shared experience together. With that comes a sense of responsibility: be inclusive, stick together, and respect one another.
* Gratitude: have a spirit of curiosity and gratitude. We’re bringing together a group of fascinating people, most of whom likely have never met each other…how amazing is that? Get to know each other, and make the cohort what you want it to be for yourself.
You will have access to the full community of support and tools for one year, at which point your membership in the community will renew for an additional year.
