After a thought provoking initial discussion about Collective Impact on February 4, you may be interested in delving deeper with practitioners from the national funding community.  The Collective Impact Forum, a field-building partnership between FSG and the Aspen Institute, will be sponsoring the 2016 Collective Impact Funder Convening on June 6-8 in Seattle. The third annual three-day funder meeting will attract about 300 leaders from private foundations, community foundations, United Ways, government agencies, and corporate foundations from around the country. The funder convening, which sold out each of the past two years, will provide opportunities for learning and peer exchange with other funders who are catalyzing change through collective impact. Discussion themes will include aligning multiple collective impact initiatives in one place, capacity building, community engagement, equity, leadership, and learning and evaluation. There will also be opportunities to take advantage of joint programming with two other audiences who will attend part of the convening: leaders of experienced collective impact initiatives and other collective impact partners.

GCRI members can register to attend the funder convening using promo code RAG50 to get $50 off their individual registration.
