Globally minded foundations, individual donors, and allies in philanthropy are warmly invited to attend Just Giving, Grantmakers Without Borders' Eighth Annual Conference on Global Social Change Philanthropy.

The conference will bring together a diverse assembly of foundation staff and trustees, individual donors and global Southern activists to learn about, discuss and debate social change grantmaking practices and explore some of the most critical issues facing grassroots communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America today

Conference participants will have more than 40 sessions to choose from, on two main tracks:

  • Global Grantmaking Practice: International grantmakers and donors, both experienced and novice, will enjoy a range of useful workshops on grantmaking practice on topics such as monitoring and evaluation, IRS regulations, disaster response, and grantee capacity-building.
  • Advancing Human Rights, Equity and Justice in a Climate-Constrained World: Global warming and other urgent environmental issues are already having a profound impact on communities throughout the world. Strategic global grantmakers are increasingly recognizing the need to understand the depth and breadth of the current environmental crisis, no matter the issues they may fund, from global health, to economic development, to women's rights. The conference will feature a range of sessions that explore grantmaking in the context of climate change, natural resource depletion, and peak oil.

Gw/oB's conference will also provide ample time to network, share experiences and build relationships with peers and allies in grantmaking.
