Philanthropic Strategies for People, Place, and Power

June 14-16, 2016  |   Oakland, CA

On June 14-16, over 300 national and place-based funders gathered from around the country for Neighborhood Funders Group's biennial convening Philanthropic Strategies for People, Place, and Power. This year's conference created a space for funders and field leaders to understand the dynamic moment we are living in and rethink grantmakers’ role in building long-term community power. It highlighted the issues our communities are facing, and community-based strategies for economic, social, and racial justice.

For more information about this year's conference, please look at our program booklet.
