Civic life today requires that we look beyond traditional labels like “volunteer,” and encourage people to express their desire to do good in the ways that are most meaningful to them. The 2020 Points of Light Conference will transition to being an online experience due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The online experience will provide content that allows the social sector to tap into the full power of people by creating a world where it is easy for every individual to do good — and impossible to sit on the sidelines.
The Points of Light Conference is a global convening of nonprofit, government, business and civic leaders who connect, collaborate, gain and share the knowledge and resources needed to galvanize the power of people to create change.
Traditionally held as an in-person convening, the 2020 Points of Light Conference is transitioning into an online experience. This new format opens the opportunity for global access to knowledge and best practice sharing relevant both prior to and through recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Points of Light Conference has long been a connector, strengthening the social sector by providing innovative ideas and resources that make it easier for people in communities across the globe to find opportunities to do good in new and meaningful ways; for businesses to share best practices and develop custom solutions to drive transformative change in the communities where their employees live and work; for nonprofits to collaborate and build capacity so they may better meet their missions; and to ensure that dedicated individuals and organizations are recognized for their commitment to taking action that improves the world.
