More than 150 people — including academics, government officials, business leaders and members of nonprofit groups — are expected to gather in San Diego on Thursday to discuss ways of increasing charitable giving along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The meeting has been convened by the U.S.-Mexico Border Philanthropy Partnership, a binational organization with more than 200 members. Its aim is to support philanthropy in the 10 border states — four in the United States and six in Mexico.
