Conference News Coverage

The San Diego Grantmakers Annual Conference is designed to bring together people from throughout our region who are passionate and strategic about philanthropy, whether personally or professionally. Our theme this year, “Cultivating Philanthropy, Seeding Change,” reflects the event’s purpose of inspiring grantmakers and developing their skills, knowledge, and connectedness to ultimately achieve greater positive impact through giving.

The conference is a unique opportunity to learn from and engage with colleague grantmakers from foundations, corporate giving programs, giving circles, donor-advised funds, grantmaking public charities, government funders and individual donors.

Our Conference Chair

A special thank you to Dr. Paula Cordeiro, a trustee of The James Irvine Foundation, for her dedicated leadership as this year's Conference Chair.
