Please join your community foundation colleagues in person or online for the 2022 HYBRID Annual National Conference for Growing Community Foundations.
Travel to the Wichita Marriott for some good old-fashioned networking and professional development to embrace peers you have missed and make new acquaintances or stay at home and explore what modern technology has to offer to help you remain remote yet meet new and old friends virtually while learning in the comfort of your home/office. Dive into the deep content live (whether you are in person or remote) and, in addition, listen to all recording at your convenience later during the year. From “blind-dates” and group discussions for the online attendees to interactive sessions connecting both audiences — there are plenty of fun ways to bond, learn, and grow! The West and the East, the North and the South come together to network and share experiences with others just as passionate about community foundations!
Over the years, the Annual National Conference for Growing Community Foundations, hosted by the Kansas Association of Community Foundations in partnership with various USA-based organizations, has gained national recognition and developed a genuine grassroots support from a variety of entities across the country turning into a collective effort, establishing a history, philosophy, and traditions that community foundations have come to rely on, respect, and trust. We appreciate and welcome support from those who care about community philanthropy and invite community foundations and other visionary organizations and individuals to make a gift to sustain the Conference – the peer-learning and growing together.
The Conference is tailored but not limited to small-staffed and volunteer-led community foundations in rural, small urban, and suburban America. It is designed to meet the needs of both new and seasoned board members and staff in practical training to enhance skills in all major areas of community foundation management. We welcome all board members and other volunteers, executive directors and other staff of community foundations from the USA and beyond.
