Join grantmakers from across New York State committed to learning more about how the social, economic, and political landscapes of the state’s fascinating and diverse regions connect to statewide grassroots campaigns & policies.

  • Meet and work with other grantmakers to explore the interdependence of different regions in New York State
  • Hear from dynamic organizations and individuals about successes and challenges of local community engagement strategies
