Social Equity Funding Forum


October 17, 2017
9:30 am - 11:30 am
Breakfast and check-in will begin at 9:00am
A renewed commitment to equity, inclusion, and diversity has emerged in the funder community.
Several foundations have taken a very public and proactive stance to develop approaches to policy and grantmaking that address systemic social issues and drive equitable impact. Philanthropy is reevaluating how work is carried out by their foundations, and their funding priorities. CNM has invited several leaders from the local philanthropic community to share the evolution of their perspectives and participate in a dialogue with forum participants about key factors and issues in this important, complex shift.
Join us to contribute to and learn what’s ahead in the approach to social equity funding, and how this can inform your organization’s planning for social equity funding opportunities.
