Do you have an idea for a conference session or workshop that will deepen learning, foster collaboration and catalyze action?

We invite you to submit a proposal for The Funders Network’s 25th Annual Conference: Be Bold Together, March 17-19, 2025 in Baltimore, Md.

Our 25th Anniversary Conference theme — Be Bold Together — emphasizes the need for courageous action and meaningful collaboration to correct injustices and deploy resources where they are most needed.

We look forward to coming together in Baltimore to delve into work that addresses the wellbeing of people and places facing an escalating climate crisis, erosion of civil liberties and pervasive economic inequities  —  all of which disproportionately impact low-income communities and communities of color.

Funders at #TFN2023 had the chance to stop by the YEP (Youth Empowerment Project) Bike Works to learn how the non-profit is helping train and support local kids in the historically Black neighborhood of Center City.

Our conference planning committee and TFN team are encouraging session ideas that are interdisciplinary, cross-cutting and grounded in racial equity.
