The Funders Network's 2021 Virtual Conference: Rise Together will create a virtual space for funders to explore the strategies and stories that are creating more equitable, sustainable, and resilient places to live — work that has taken on increased urgency as we face the dual challenges of a global pandemic and structural racism.
TFN’s mission is to leverage philanthropy’s unique potential to help create communities and regions that are sustainable, prosperous and just for all people. But we recognize that these goals cannot be achieved without first challenging and confronting the systemic imbalances in power, privilege and access to resources that disproportionately impact communities of color, specifically Black people, and create stark inequities that continue to harm racialized and marginalized people and places.
In keeping with our 2021 Virtual Conference theme — Rise Together — we’ve encouraged session ideas that are interdisciplinary, cross-cutting and grounded in racial equity. Visit our event page for updates on our sessions and speakers. Registration will launch in December 2020. We hope you'll join us!
