Slate 60 returns to LR

Posted By on Fri, Feb 16, 2007 at 11:32 AM

The Slate 60 philanthropy conference, which was held at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock last November and included celebrity donors like Ted Turner and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, will return to the same venue on Oct. 21 and 22.

“We have seen an increased interest in the Slate 60 in recent years, especially during the Slate 60 Conference we held last November, and an explosion in innovative philanthropy,” said Slate's publisher, Cliff Sloan, in a press release. “That excitement is why we have decided to hold a second Slate 60 conference later this year at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library.”

Slate also today released its new list of the top 60 U.S. charitable contributions of the last year, topped by Warren Buffett's 36.4 billion pledge.
