A COVID-19 Update

Planet Philanthropy Update – July 17, 2020

Dear Planet Philanthropy Friends,

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic led to the difficult decision to postpone the Planet Philanthropy 2020 conference.   While we know this was disappointing, we hope you understand this was a necessary step to help keep each other safe.

Thank you for allowing us the time needed to work with our event coordinator and the Caribe Royale Hotel to work out a new contract in order to reschedule the conference to 2021.

The furlough of the Caribe Royale special event/banquet staff for several months caused the process to take much longer than anticipated.  That being said, we are pleased to share that all has been confirmed and Planet Philanthropy 2021 will be held at the Caribe Royale Hotel in Orlando June 6-8, 2021.

All 2020 registrations will be transferred to Planet Philanthropy 2021.

While we are unable to convene in-person this year, we will be providing a virtual education series with Planet Philanthropy presenters and volunteer leadership as part of our ongoing commitment to those attendees currently registered.  Watch for email coming soon!
