CMF’s virtual 49th Annual Conference ─ Connecting Diverse Voices ─ continues our community of philanthropy’s shared equity journey. Together, we’ll explore the facets of diversity in our sector, in our world and in ourselves, from the different perspectives and ideas we share to the individual lived experiences and backgrounds we bring, to the distinct ways foundations live their missions and strive to create a positive and lasting impact.

Together in this Annual Conference we’ll go deeper into the most critical and relevant issues we face in our sector and our world, asking questions and inviting conversation that challenges our thinking and inspires our action. 

Connect with your peers across the state as we lift up thought leadership, strategies and resources around CMF’s pillars of equity, people, policy and practice, with equity at the center. This is the time to renew, refresh and recharge as we collectively advance acts of love for humankind.

Conference registration is open. You can register and see updates on this page with announcements about our learning lineup, main stage events and much more!
