These challenging times call for funders to lead in bold new ways. A better future for all Californians, especially low-income communities and communities of color, will require unprecedented levels of innovation, collaboration, and action. That’s why TFN’s Smart Growth California’s Funder Summit will be held in Sacramento from January 29-30, 2019, right on the heels of the November elections. At the 2019 Smart Growth California Funder Summit, you will hear from elected leaders and agency officials about the biggest policy opportunities at the regional and state levels, gain insights from the nonprofit and community partners who are leading groundbreaking efforts on-the-ground, and share and strategize with funders across issue areas and geographies. California can be proof for what’s possible on so many fronts: social justice, health, affordable housing, transportation, water, parks, climate, and economic opportunity. But it won’t happen without you, so please mark your calendar for the 2019 Funder Summit. The Funder Summit is being designed to facilitate action at every turn, with significant time for break-out groups and networking. Come well-rested; leave energized!
