About the Miss Hall's School Philanthropic Round Table

In 1997 Miss Hall's School established the Philanthropic Round Table (PRT) to raise the level of discourse on women and philanthropy. Meeting in New York annually in April, a small group of women and men, who have deep and broad personal experience in philanthropy, have a conversation to share their beliefs and insights. The conversation is then recorded and published. The conversations are lively as well as inspirational for the select audience in attendance, and the publications of the proceedings, mailed to several thousand each year, have generated robust response and discussion.
Previous Round Tables have focused on themes such as using philanthropy to effect change, modeling philanthropy, partnering in a shared vision, the spirit of the gift, the connections and transformation that occur through philanthropy, ensuring the future, and building a legacy. Participants have included philanthropists, foundation directors, educators, authors, and non-profit CEOs - all skilled professionals in the field.
