In Focus Series

Learn about specific topics by tackling emerging trends and policy issues of concern to philanthropy. In this focused learning environment, participants exchange ideas about how philanthropy can address rapidly evolving issues and share updates about their work.

By bringing funders together on a regular basis over the course of one year, In Focus provides a platform for funders to address key issues through collaboration and action. This series is currently focusing on Health Care Reform and STEM and the Arts Education.
