Our 2018 convening will be an opportunity to gather with local, state, and national foundations with diverse interests to discuss emerging challenges and opportunities for newcomers and receiving communities. Running from February 27 through March 1, 2018, the conference will explore a wide range of issues facing immigrants and refugees at this critical juncture—and how diverse grantmakers across the country are responding. Participants will consider the promising practices, strategies, and approaches being pursued in the field and in philanthropy.


Don't miss this unique opportunity to network with your peers and inform your grantmaking on a wide range of cutting-edge issues. 



The convening will run from February 27 - March 1, 2018. It will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday and end at 2:15 p.m. on Thursday. See the full agenda for more details. 


The conference is in Los Angeles, CA, with programming at The California Endowment's Los Angeles Conference Center and accommodations at the Millennium Biltmore Los Angeles.


Registration is open to all in philanthropy until January 26, 2018.
