Neighborhood Funders Group - NFG 2016 National Conference in Oakland / by Lonny Meyer

Spent three days recently at a national philanthropy conference. 

On June 14-16, over 300 national and place-based funders gathered from around the country for Neighborhood Funders Group's biennial convening Philanthropic Strategies for People, Place, and Power. This year's conference created a space for funders and field leaders to understand the dynamic moment we are living in and rethink grantmakers’ role in building long-term community power. It highlighted the issues our communities are facing, and community-based strategies for economic, social, and racial justice.
