Queen's Conference on Philanthropy is Canada's premier undergraduate philanthropic conference. At QCOP, we aim to educate, inspire and empower top undergraduate delegates nationwide to make a difference in today's world. QCOP 2015 will feature a lineup of accomplished and motivational speakers who work across different industries, and welcome over 150 delegates from across Canada. Delegates will participate in a series of hands-on workshops to provide them with tools to address, analyze, and tackle both local and global issues.
The 2015 conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront at 2 Princess St., Kingston, ON.
The theme for QCOP 2015 is CONNECT – an experience that challenges delegates to not only reflect upon important ideas surrounding philanthropy, but to "connect" to these principles in their daily lives. QCOP is a dynamic forum for the humanities, social activism and the understanding of both personal and corporate social responsibility.
The Queen's Conference on Philanthropy aims to create a forum for like-minded students to discuss their passion for philanthropy and to shape Canada's next generation of philanthropic leaders. We create this forum through inviting top speakers, offering engaging workshops and providing networking opportunities for our delegates. Achieving this vision each year would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. However, while we depend on sponsorship to create this incredible conference, how does this benefit you?
Your support of QCOP will demonstrate a keen interest in local and global issues, endorsement of important company values, and strategic alignment towards long-term success.
