The Funders’ Network (TFN) 2019 Annual Conference marks the network’s 20th anniversary. We’ll be coming back to Miami, the site of TFN’s first annual conference, providing the perfect opportunity to reflect on the past, explore the present and look forward to the future.

We’re looking for dynamic, interesting and informative proposals for sessions and speakers, particularly those that advance TFN’s goals of creating communities that are equitable, environmentally sustainable and economically prosperous.

How are communities grappling with climate change, natural disasters and other environmental threats? Addressing social, racial and economic injustices? Fostering opportunities for success and well-being for all, not just some?

While we hope to explore these over-arching themes in many ways, we give special consideration to proposals that address the impact on low-income communities,
communities of color and other vulnerable populations.
If you have a great story, strategy or lesson to share with fellow funders and other influencers, we encourage you to propose a session for #TFNMiami.

About #TFNMiami

TFN’s Annual Conference brings together funders from across North America to explore the strategies and stories that are creating more equitable, sustainable and resilient places to live — work that has taken on new urgency as we face increasingly challenging times. Our signature annual event is an opportunity to highlight philanthropy’s potential for meaningful impact in our regions and communities, and hear from diverse and thought-provoking voices on issues such as protecting our natural resources, building inclusive economies and addressing injustice.
TFN’s 2019 Annual Conference takes place March 18-20 at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay, located in Downtown Miami across the bay from South Beach and a short hop to neighborhoods like Wynwood and Little Haiti.
With the region facing sea level rise and the impacts of climate
change, we will explore intersectional questions and models around climate and
community with Miami as a learning laboratory.
(Curious about the photo at the top of this post? It’s just one of the hundreds of street-art murals that have made Wynwood an international arts destination — and just one of the many local stories we’ll explore at our conference.)
