“Thank you for an amazing conference making us better grantmakers and partners in the field. And above all, thanks for pushing us to break silos and change systems of oppression through action and example.”

-2018 Convening Participant

Connecting, organizing, & mobilizing philanthropy is at the core of NFG’s work. 

This valuable role has increased in impact as our membership and network continue to grow—we now count over 100 institutions in our membership, with hundreds of individuals participating in our programming. The importance of coming together is clear.

It’s both an exciting & critical moment for philanthropy.

Funders are grappling with how to re-prioritize and meet the needs of these times. With a sense of urgency and willingness to evolve, we are seeing funders unite and come together in creative new ways.

Our 2018 National Convening provided an opportunity to connect with grantmakers committed to racial, social, economic, and gender justice in the U.S. We shared models, strengthened partnerships, and forged new alliances with the goal of moving resources to support innovative place-based work led by and benefiting communities of color and low-income communities.
