We hope you'll join us in New Orleans from March 20 to 22 for TFN's Annual Conference: Ignite Action as we bring together diverse and thought-provoking voices to explore philanthropy’s potential for meaningful impact in our regions and communities — including protecting people and planet, building inclusive economies and addressing injustice.
The theme for our 2023 Annual Conference — Ignite Action — recognizes the need for all of us to light the way toward systemic change with urgency and purpose. As our communities grapple with the impacts of a worsening climate crises, a widening racial wealth gap, and increased assaults on our civil liberties and bodily autonomy, we'll gather together to address questions of critical importance:
- How can we help energize and sustain the movements that are pushing us toward racial, economic and environmental justice?
- How can we extinguish the systemic inequities that touch every aspect of our shared world — the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the places where we live, work and play?
- How can we best unleash philanthropy’s potential in ways that spark ideas, fuel collaboration and ignite action?
- How can we save and strengthen our democracy?
