March 15 - March 17, 2021 12:00 am
In these uncertain times, we are all doing our best to prioritize the wellbeing of those we care about and the communities we serve. For this reason, The Funders Network has decided to move our 2021 Annual Conference to an all-virtual format.
We hope you will mark your calendars for TFN’s 2021 Virtual Conference: Rise Together, March 15 to 17.
It is precisely because we are in such uncertain waters that it is essential that we take the time to seek out the meaningful connections, strategies and inspirations that fuel and support your work as grantmakers.
While we had originally hoped to come together — in person — in New Orleans, we will nonetheless find ways to lift up and learn from this amazing and resilient community as part of our virtual conference.
We are also seeking ways to minimize the economic impact of this decision, and will be highlighting opportunities to support local New Orleans vendors, artists and community causes as part of our conference offerings. (Stay tuned for the debut of our Shop Here! Virtual Market, featuring an opportunity to order from NOLA-based small businesses.)
We are delighted to share that Carmen James Randolph, vice president for programs at the Greater New Orleans Foundation, and Tené Traylor, fund advisor at The Kendeda Fund, will serve as co-chairs of TFN’s 2021 Virtual Conference.
