Do you have a great idea for a breakout session for #TFNSanDiego? We want to hear from you!

The Funders’ Network’s 2020 Annual Conference: Bridge the Divide will be held March 16 -18 in San Diego, Calif.

We’re looking for dynamic, strategic, and informative proposals for sessions, speakers and mobile workshops, particularly those that advance TFN’s interdisciplinary approach to equity, economy and environment.

How can we overcome the barriers to opportunity, empowerment and justice for all?

How can we build sustainable, thriving communities despite stark inequities?

How can we find solutions that break down silos and move beyond borders?

We invite you share the strategies and stories that are bridging divides and making an impact.

In keeping with our theme — Bridge the Divide — we’re encouraging proposals that are interdisciplinary in their approach and highlight innovative work at the intersection of multiple issues. As in previous years, we’ll give special consideration to proposals that address low-income communities, communities of color, and vulnerable populations.

Take a look at our #TFNSanDiego Call for Proposals to learn more about this year’s guidelines and selection process. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Lesmarie Nicholson.

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 injustices.
