Well, that's a wrap. And also a beginning. Over 500 people gathered at Sunriver, OR for our first-ever joint conference with GRANTMAKERS of Oregon and Southwest Washington. The River Gathering was our biggest, most ambitious and -- near as we can tell -- most successful conference ever. Thank you to all of you who joined us to share your knowledge of, passion for and deep committment to philanthropy that strengthens our region's communities!
Plenary session with foundation CEOs discussing diversity, equity and inclusion in philanthropy.
We're still sorting through all of the materials we gathered, and you'll see more here soon, but you can already find:
- Thoughtful blog posts from conference participants David Wertheimer (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) and Sam Whiting (Thrive By Five).
- Notes and handouts from many sessions on rivergathering.org, our conference website. (Available only to conference attendees.)
- An amazing collection of photos from conference attendees on Flickr, which you can browse or view as a slideshow.
- A rich set of tweets from conference participants, embedded below.
