Unicorns Unite is a playful, whimsical journey through a challenging conversation about the way foundations and nonprofits relate today, and why we're stuck in the status quo. The book works to establish a common identity as 'unicorns' – for changemakers of all kinds, fundraisers and funders, based on our pride in our hard work and shared aspirations for a vibrant, thriving planet and communities. The book helps unicorns make EPIC Partnerships happen through a series of fun and thought-provoking exercises to do and discuss with teams, partners, and boards."

Foundation Center will host an interactive live discussion with unicorn professionals (foundation and nonprofit leaders), in conversation with  two of Unicorns Unite’s authors – Jane Leu and Jessamyn Shams-Lau. Come engage with your fellow unicorns on the themes of unicorn nightmares and dreams, money, trust, and standards. And work with your peers to design a future filled with EPIC partnerships.
