GCIR National Convenings

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. 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 learning, as well as foster lively discussions and authentic relationship building.

Previous convening locations have included Austin, Texas; Nashville, Tennessee; Portland, Oregon; New York, New York; Chicago, Illinois; Denver, Colorado; Twin Cities, Minnesota; San Diego, California; and Miami, Florida.
