About the 2020 Convening
With the safety and wellbeing of our network in mind, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person aspect of our annual convening in Houston, Texas this summer. While we will not be in the same space, we know that providing a virtual opportunity for our network to collaborate and share at this critical moment for civic engagement is important to maintain our connections.
Join us online June 22-23 as we bring together funders and community changemakers for two days of learning, networking, and alignment conversations. As we review our work thus far and look toward the remainder of the year and beyond, we will
- Learn about the current state and necessary shifts of the 2020 civic engagement field in the Southwest and around the country,
- Provide space to share critical efforts from our working groups and special projects, particularly initial 2020 Census learnings and impacts from the current climate,
- Continue to prioritize equity and justice as key tenets of what it looks like to build long term power in communities, and
- Have funder-focused conversations that enhance collaboration for not only the remainder of 2020, but for the years and changes to come.
Stay tuned for updates on agendas and online registration information.
Please note: FCCP’s 2020 Convening is open to all funders and donor advisors (FCCP members or not), philanthropy serving organizations, and invited speakers.
Houston Registrations Update: For those of you who have already registered and booked travel around the Houston convening, we will issue full registration refunds to those who request them. If you and your organization are in a position to make your registration fee a donation to FCCP, your contribution would be greatly appreciated and would go to support ongoing programming and further meaningful connections for our membership. Madeleine Cáceres, Operations Coordinator from the FCCP team, will follow up directly with all who registered.
