The United States has been the wealthiest country on the planet for the last 60 years.

And yet the American Dream remains shamefully out of reach for too many people thanks to persistent economic and social inequities that create barriers to wealth and opportunity — notably for Black, Indigenous, Latinx/e and other racially marginalized communities.

Join us in Atlanta June 28-29 for TFN’s Inclusive Economies 2023 Meeting: Pathways to Power & Prosperity to deepen understanding of systemic challenges to opportunity, examine effective and equitable funding strategies and explore collaborations that drive change.

This gathering will bring together funders from across the U.S., as well as Atlanta practitioners, advocates and frontline community leaders, in order to:

  • Learn how philanthropy can help communities access and leverage federal resources in ways that are equitable and align with community-determined priorities.

  • Explore how best to support community-driven solutions that center the leadership, lived experiences and priorities of those most impacted by disinvestment and other systemic economic inequities.

  • Identify strategies that support BIPOC entrepreneurship and innovation, increase access to capital, and cultivate job-creation and workforce development.

  • Gain insight into the power of funding collaborations with institutional partners such as HBCUs, local government and Federal Reserve Banks.

  • Hear from local decision-makers and frontline community leaders based in Atlanta about the successes and challenges they face in embedding inclusive economic practices into local practice, and how their learning can inform grantmaking across the South and other geographies.

  • Expand your personal and professional network by connecting with fellow funders and other leaders in the philanthropic and civic sectors.

  • Develop a shared agenda for future funder learning and action.
