Weaving the fabric of a stronger future
The world is rapidly changing around us. If the nonprofit and philanthropic sector is to thrive in the decades ahead, we must come together to assess the daunting challenges and incredible opportunities that face us.
That's why Independent Sector and our convening partners will be holding critical community conversations about the trends, obstacles, and opportunities that will affect every organization and individual working toward the common good over the next 20 years. We’re calling these conversations Threads.
Independent Sector and the Ford Foundation invite you to our very first Thread in New York City, the beating heart of our changing world. This will be a rare opportunity for a vibrant cross-section of leaders and practitioners to meet face-to-face.
We will share our research on the trends that are shaping the future. Then, together, we’ll identify how best to address obstacles and leverage opportunities as we move forward into a changing landscape.
Join us for this unique opportunity to expand your network across boundaries, elevate the issues that define New York's charitable sector, and lend your voice to a conversation that can change the way we work as a sector.  

Designed for

All interested funders.
