About GCIR Convenings
Every two years, GCIR holds the nation's only convening dedicated to immigrant and refugee grantmaking. The biennial convening brings together funders from across the country to examine a wide range of strategies for welcoming newcomers and integrating them into our communities. Capped at 125 participants, the convening is designed to be a focused, intimate gathering that allows participants to delve deeper into issues than they could at a typical conference. Through plenaries, workshops, and learning tours, the convening seeks to maximize peer-based, cross-sector learing, as well as foster lively discussions and authentic relationship building. Previous convening locations have included Portland, Oregon; New York, New York; Chicago, Illinois; Denver, Colorado; Twin Cities, Minnesota; San Diego, California; and Miami, Florida.
