Be The Change
At the end of 2013, President Obama stated that growing income inequality is the ""defining challenge of our time."" Given this reality, and if Bay Area communities offer an index for how the effects of such disparity can unfold—how does Philanthropy respond? This is the question we'll explore on April 8th at our 2014 Annual Conference.
Taking it to a Whole New Level
This year NCG is giving its Annual Meeting a makeover. NCG is pleased to partner with Alliance for Justice and the Neighborhood Funders Group to present a dynamic full-day conference.
For our inaugural Annual Conference we are pleased to feature two thought-provoking and engaging speakers: Former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert B. Reich and Rebuild the Dream President Van Jones. Both speakers will address how the issue of income inequality is impacting communities on a local and national scale.
More Details Soon
Registration for this year's Annual Conference will open at the end of this month. Check ncg.org/annualconference for the latest information.
