Inclusive Economies Virtual Meeting: Policy, Power & People

December 1, 2021 – December 3, 2021 all-day America/New York Timezone

Income inequality is the highest it’s been in 50 years. The wealth gap is on the rise. Household and student loan debt have reached all-time peaks.

Economic mobility and shared prosperity remain out of reach for too many people, notably Black, brown, Indigenous and other communities of color — stark inequities only worsened by the impacts of COVID.

As we continue to grapple with both an ongoing pandemic and systemic racism, philanthropy can play a key role in ensuring an equitable economic recovery that connects people and neighborhoods of color to employment and wealth-building opportunities.

Join TFN’s Inclusive Economies 2021 Virtual Meeting: Policy, Power & People to explore how you can increase your impact as a funder in this unprecedented moment.



We hope you’ll save the date for this funder-only virtual meeting Dec. 1-3.

Our virtual meeting will offer funders an opportunity to:

  • Learn about the unprecedented federal investments — including the American Rescue Plan — as well as private commitments and community-driven models building more inclusive economies.
  • Better understand how to support ecosystems of actors and create systems change through capital, community organizing, advocacy and broader community development strategies.
  • Examine partnerships, policies, and grantmaking strategies that advance racial and economic justice.
  • Provide time for shared learning, funder discussion and exploring collaborative opportunities.
  • Network and connect with peers and partners in the sector.

Stay tuned for updates on speakers, sessions and registration dates!


Registration will open later this fall. This virtual event is open to donors, staff, directors and trustees of all grantmaking institutions.

About TFN’s Inclusive Economies

TFN’s Inclusive Economies working group brings place-based funders and related partners from across the sector together to build working relationships, advancing understanding of practices and policies that lead to inclusive prosperity, and taking joint action that drives the field forward.

We apply a three-part focus — race, place and prosperity — to economic growth and development.

A particular goal is connecting people and neighborhoods of color to employment and wealth-building opportunities through investment, systems change and policy reform.
