The University of San Diego hosts a conference on nonprofit and philanthropic organizations this week.
BenchMark 3.5: The 4th Conference on Nonprofit and Philanthropic Studies is scheduled for Thursday, March 24 through Saturday, March 26, at the Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa.

The conference is presented by the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council and hosted by the USD School of Leadership and Education Sciences' Institute for Nonprofit Education and Research. The Arizona State University Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation is the lead sponsor for BenchMark 3.5.
