Just Giving: Global Social Change Philanthropy is the name of Grantmakers Without Borders annual conference. Since 2001, these unique and valuable events have brought together a diverse assembly of foundations, grantmaking public charities, individual donors and global Southern activists, who learn, network, and explore collaboration through sessions that cover a wide range of global grantmaking topics. For many international grantmakers, Gw/oB's annual conference has become a cherished and indispensable event in their yearly calendars.

Participants will have more than 30 sessions to choose from, on two main tracks:

  • grantmaking practice, to build capacity on such skills as monitoring and evaluation, grantor-grantee relations, and collaborative grantmaking
  • social change and social justice, to explore some of the most urgent issues facing grassroots communities today.

Gw/oB conferences are especially prized for their networking opportunities, which include ample in-between time as well as several creatively facilitated networking sessions.

Just prior to the official start of the conference will be several special events, including the truly unique Gender and Global Grantmaking Workshop and daylong meetings of grantmakers working in Haiti, Africa and Meso-America.
Tuscon Conference
Gw/oB's 2010 conference, which will celebrate Gw/oB's 10-year anniversary, promises to be our best yet. Don't miss this unique opportunity to connect with familiar and new colleagues, learn new strategies for meeting today's most urgent challenges and promising opportunities-- and leave refreshed and inspired to make change in our world through your charitable giving.
