About Philanthro Productions
Philanthro Productions is an organization that puts together events for the purpose of charity awareness. It was founded in February 2007 by Ian Lee and Andrew Geisse in Los Angeles, and holds events that can bridge the gap between young adults and charity, targeting get young professionals and getting them more involved with the community.
“People work all day and most may find it difficult to find the time to volunteer. This is where Philanthro Productions comes in. By hosting first rate parties and charging about the same rate as a regular night out, Philanthro Productions eliminates the trade-off between hanging out with friends and giving back to the community,” says Stephanie Dang, co-president of Philanthro’s San Diego chapter.
Philanthro Productions donates 100% of net proceeds to charity, which typically comes out to 90% of all proceeds after expenses have been considered. Since 2007 Philanthro has grown to be immensely successful. Not only has the event revenue increased in over 400%, the original Los Angeles chapter has expanded to San Diego and San Francisco, making charitable social events more accessible all over California.
The events hosted by Philanthro Productions show much promise in creating awareness of volunteer opportunities within the community. All 3 chapters—San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco—are completely volunteer run, and all net proceeds go to charity. Dang says that “[We] try to instill some education into each event. We want our guests to know that their time and money are going to a good cause.”
Not only is this kind dedication to the community inspiring, it is contagious as well. Many people have become involved with Philanthro Productions through different means whether it be through finding online postings, attending events, or through networking.

So what can we expect from Philanthro Productions in the future? This November, Philanthro Productions will be hosting its first ever tri-city event! What this means is that the 3 cities will be uniting under 1 cause. Each chapter will host an event on the same night in support of Pencils of Promise. “It will be Philanthro’s first time doing this and we’re very excited!” says Dang, so “stay tuned!”
The Entertainer is proud to support local charities and continues to support Philanthro Productions’ charity events. Check back with the Entertainer and Philanthro Productions to hear more about future events and you you can get involved.
