Our Events

Creating and planning special events to provide opportunities for community and business dialogue will continue to be an important activity for us.

In 2021, we hosted the Homeless and Housing Conference which was planned by a team of community and business partners. In early 2022, we also hosted a seminar on charitable trusts and planned-giving which provided continuing education credits to attendees. During the next two years, we are considering additional special events focused on our priority funding areas and welcome your input.
