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.”
