Embracing the theme of “Doing Good Better,” our 40th anniversary allows us to mark the occasion by spreading the news of how Foundation Center Midwest has been doing good better and provide unique learning, networking and skill-building opportunities to expand the value of philanthropy locally and support communities in building capacity to solve problems.
We invite you to join us Thursday, November 2, 2017 for our 40th Anniversary Program. Our special guest is Floyd Mills, Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for The Council on Foundations. Mr. Mills will tap into his vast experiences and insights about diversity, equity and inclusion to reflect and also challenge us to think about “how we do good, better today and into the future.” He will explore what risks we may face, how our courage may be challenged, where we may need to strengthen our capacity as a sector and how can we be better partners with philanthropy?
As a trusted and respected convener, we leverage our brand, vast network and deep insights to showcase philanthropy in action across all ages, pertinent issues and special populations. Donor support over the past four decades has enabled us to establish ourselves as the premier Midwestern resource for comprehensive data, training and insights on the social sector. Throughout this time, we have helped thousands of non-profit professionals, grant seekers, and the philanthropic organizations that fund them meet community need, strengthen the social sector, and be a catalyst for social change.
