For more than 40 years, Lynne Twist has been a recognized global visionary committed to alleviating poverty and hunger and supporting social justice and environmental sustainability. From working with Mother Teresa in Calcutta to the refugee camps in Ethiopia and the threatened rainforests of the Amazon, as well as guiding the philanthropy of some of the world's wealthiest families, Lynne's on-the-ground work has brought her a deep understanding of people's relationship with money. Founder of the Soul of Money Institute, Lynne has worked with over 100,000 people in 50 countries in the arenas of fundraising with integrity, conscious philanthropy, strategic visioning and creating a healthy relationship with money.

This Forum is especially created for AFP Golden Gate's members, based on Lynne's best-selling book The Soul of Money: Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Life (re-released in 2017 and translated into 9 languages). Lynne will examine the ways our beliefs constrict our relationship with money, offer new pathways to realign that relationship, and inspire us to take a stand for philanthropic work where we are fully ourselves as fundraisers and other fundraising-related professionals. (Lynne will be available to sign books at the reception, and there will be some books for sale on hand.)

Lynne is particularly  interested in speaking to younger women in, or moving into, fundraising leadership roles. Two of our members fitting this demographic, Priscilla Lopez, Leadership Gifts & Campaign Associate at ACLU Northern California, and Renee Saedi, Donor Stewardship Officer at Global Fund for Women, will act as respondents to Lynne's keynote, serving as a gateway to a robust audience discussion. If you are interested in creating a culture of philanthropy in your organization, and for people in various roles to gain valuable perspectives on their relationship with money, asking for money, etc -- don't miss this special opportunity with Lynne Twist. Bring your whole team!
