October 22 - July 24, 2019 | New Orleans, Louisiana

Join the largest national convening of education grantmakers in New Orleans, Louisiana. Local successes and challenges will stimulate national conversations about transforming education, from birth through postsecondary success. Drawing on brain science and the latest evidence, we will explore the social, emotional and academic dimensions of learning. Our theme affirms the commitment in our community to equity of opportunity and outcomes for students, especially those who have experienced trauma, racial injustice and disability.

Focused on improving outcomes for all learners, our conferences are designed to inspire, challenge and prepare education philanthropists in light of the changing field of education philanthropy and a changing society. Highly rated year after year, our conferences unite funders and experts in exploration of the deep and sometimes thorny education and philanthropic issues on the horizon.
