As the United States undergoes a transformative period, much uncertainty remains as to what the future holds after the dust settles. In the midst of this precariousness, the responsibility of nonprofits to fulfill their missions and solve critical needs in their communities has taken on an enhanced urgency. To explore this further, Foundation Center is proud to host a full-day convening as an opportunity for the sector to gather, learn, listen, and discuss how these changes are impacting nonprofits' fundraising and sustainability.
Join us for a very special event, which will spotlight some of the large-scale changes taking place across the nation and the world, with a look at how nonprofits, foundations, and other social change agents can and are proactively responding to those changes. The day’s event will be an interactive one, so come prepared both to learn from our lineup of adept guest speakers, and to share your own insights with panelists and peers.
You are invited to attend any of the sessions from the agenda, or register for all four sessions to stay for the full day.
