Mark your calendars for The Funders Network’s 2022 Annual Conference: Seize the Moment, scheduled for March 14-16 in San Diego! We hope to bring together funders from across North America to expand our learning, foster collaboration and catalyze action.
Our theme for TFN’s 2022 Annual Conference — Seize the Moment — is an opportunity to come together after more than a year of disruption to share how we can deepen our ties to the people and places we serve, deploy resources where they are most needed, and push for powerful and creative strategies that can address inequities and move us toward justice.
We recognize that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, coupled with a long-overdue national reckoning on racial justice and the ever-increasing impacts of climate crises and extreme weather, has presented us with a singular moment in history.
How can philanthropy best support community-powered efforts to combat climate crises, address racial injustice and build economic opportunities?
As communities seek to rebound from the disastrous health, social and economic impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, how do we ensure a truly equitable recovery?
How can the sector effectively advocate for equitable policies at the local, state and regional level — and leverage its reputational capital to combat disinformation and defend against the erosion of civil liberties?
What are the tools and strategies that can improve the outcomes and impact of grantmaking, especially for marginalized and underrepresented communities?
We look forward to seeing you in San Diego to share, learn and strategize together — hopefully in person!
