These challenging times call for funders to lead in bold new ways, especially here in California. A better future for all Californians, especially low-income communities and communities of color, will require unprecedented levels of innovation, collaboration and action.

At Smart Growth California’s 2019 Funder Summit you will:

  • Hear from elected leaders and agency officials about the biggest policy opportunities at the regional and state levels.
  • Gain insights from the nonprofit and community partners who are leading groundbreaking efforts on-the-ground.
  • Share and strategize with funders across issue areas and geographies.
