Connect directly with grant funders

We brought back our Meet the Funders hour, an opportunity to meet community grant funders for nonprofits! This was a unique chance for nonprofit leaders to introduce themselves and their mission to nonprofit financial backers.

Meet like-minded philanthropists

Participants networked with dedicated advocates just like them. We scheduled our Meet & Greet session the day before the conference. All attendees were invited to join and connect with fellow nonprofit leaders.

Registered conference attendees were invited to participate in our pitch contest.
