Want to learn more about those on the front lines of the ongoing battle against homelessness and poverty in the Bay Area? Interested in learning what a career in the service of society actually looks like? Come join us for breakfast with Tipping Point Community Founder + CEO (and Duke alumnus), Daniel Lurie '99.

Over coffee and a light breakfast we'll learn the story behind the organization that has raised more than $150 million since 2005, and helped put 23,000 people on the path out of poverty in the last year alone. The Tipping Point Board pays 100% of the organization's operating costs, so every dollar donated goes where it’s needed most. Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear how it started and how they've successfully leveraged partnerships with the public and private sectors to maximize their impact for the common good.

8–8:15 a.m. Check-in & light breakfast
8:15–9 a.m. Conversation
9–9:30 a.m. Q&A
9:30–10 a.m. Continued reception and networking

Special thanks to Jamie Yoo Otto JD'13 and Adrian Dollard '92, JD'95, P'23 for their assistance in bringing this event together.
