Convening's and Donor Briefings

Convenings and Donor Briefings

The Community Foundation's convenings, held throughout the year and open to the general public, bring the community together around important topics and often feature prominent local and national speakers. 

For donors, our donor briefing series offers smaller settings for in-depth presentations and discussions about issues impacting our community, such as immigration, media, arts sustainability and health care access. If you are interested in attending future Donor Briefings, email Dotty Weston-Murphy.
