SCG members are invited to attend the Health and Environmental Funders Network 2014 Annual Conference October 27-28 in Los Angeles, at the discounted HEFN member rate.

Imagine it's 2029. Funders are celebrating, and not just because it's HEFN's 30th anniversary.  We're celebrating clean water to drink, fresh air to breathe, good food to eat, safe products to use.  People are living, learning, working, and playing in healthier places.  Communities are more resilient and more in control of local land use, energy, food production, and economic development.  Broad majorities mobilized years ago in times of crisis have accelerated transitions to renewables and efficiencies, reduced inequalities, and helped restore the public interest in public policy.

At this two-day gathering, funders and donors will:

  • Spark conversation about positive visions for the next 5, 10, 15 years;
  • Gain inspiration from cutting-edge research, organizing, and policy in LA, the Golden State, and elsewhere;
  • Explore alternatives development in areas like green chemistry and renewable energy, local control and civic engagement, policy tools and investment strategies, community resilience and economic development;
  • Celebrate philanthropy's past 15 years of investment, learning, and field-building for healthier people, environments, and communities; and,
  • Strategize philanthropy's next moves to enable and accelerate progress towards the best possible version of our future.

The 2014 Annual Meeting Program Committe includes: Jennifer Chheang (The California Endowment); Christine James (John Merck Fund); Phil Johnson (Heinz Endowments); Amy Panek (Park Foundation); Michele Prichard & Daniela Simunovic (Liberty Hill Foundation); and Amy Solomon (Jenifer Altman Foundation).

Join HEFN in LA to celebrate past milestones, explore today's realities, and sharpen strategies forward.
