Scholarship Opportunities Application

Thanks to our Equity & Inclusion Partners, FCCP will provide scholarships to offset some or all convening registration fees, on a limited basis, for our 2023 Annual Convening. Please note, scholarship recipients will still be responsible for all expenses related to convening travel and accommodations. The application period for our scholarships is now closed. Please contact convening@funderscommittee.org for any questions. 

Sponsorship Opportunities Available Now

Sponsorship opportunities for FCCP’s 2023 Convening are available now. We need your support to make this convening a success. Because we work to keep registration fees as low as feasible, they alone do not cover our costs to hold the annual convening. Please consider supporting FCCP and this hallmark event today by sponsoring a portion of our four days together.
