Every two years, foundation leaders, asset owners and supporters of the field of mission investing come together at the national conference in order to learn and make connections that result in better and more mission investments.
Join your colleagues and peers at this year's event, May 13-15, in Minneapolis-St. Paul. We will feature high-energy facilitators and sessions for all levels of practitioners and all types of philanthropic asset owners and managers.
You will learn from colleagues, share experiences, and build your mission investing program through a variety of discussions, workshops, investment showcases, and offsite learning for advanced and emerging leaders in mission investing. Whether you have yet to make your first mission investment or are an experienced practitioner, this conference is for you!
