Towards a More Resilient Place: Promising Practice in Place-Based Philanthropy

Please join the Aspen Institute’s Forum for Community Solutions and Neighborhood Funders Group (NFG) for Towards a More Resilient Place: Promising Practices in Place-Based Philanthropy, a convening September 19-21, 2016 at the Aspen Meadows Resort in Aspen, Colorado.

As place-based efforts continue to expand, the relationship between philanthropy and community must evolve and change. For community change efforts to be successful, the people who live there must be central to the design and implementation because place is about the people who live and ultimately thrive there. This gathering will provide the opportunity to learn about practices, policies and models for creating places that are just and responsive to the needs of those that live there.

Participants will:

  • Learn about successful practices and models from around the country
  • Have the opportunity for peer learning
  • Assess what philanthropy needs to be doing differently to advance community well-being
  • Explore strategies and skills for improving grantmaking practice.
