Towards a More Resilient Place: Promising Practice in Place-Based Philanthropy - Convening Summary and Video Highlights
On September 19-21, 2016, Neighborhood Funders Group and the Aspen Forum for Community Solutions hosted a three-day funders’ convening on place-based philanthropy. This gathering in Aspen, Colorado, provided an in-depth exploration of best practices for philanthropy’s role in improving the well-being of people and communities.
This convening was a space for local, regional and national funders to have the opportunity to learn about practices, policies and models for working in a collaborative way to grow funders and community organizations that work on the ground, with learnings from past successes and failures of funder peers. We sought to gather a broad range of perspectives to foster a learning exchange regarding behaviors, content, and practices that make community change efforts more productive and collaborative.
