2023 Conference for Growing Community Foundattions

Join us for the 2023 Conference for Growing Community Foundations October 18-20 at the Wichita Marriott.
Hear about how five small towns in Kansas are using the Sustainable Development Goals to improve their communities and follow the session with From Vision to Victory: Mastering the Art of Community Project Execution to help you do the same in your community.

Maybe you want to start with learning the nuts and bolts of community foundations by attending the CF Basics sessions or maybe you want to ramp up the impact you want to make in your community by attending Defining Impact with Your Board.

The Kansas Leadership Center will empower everyone during their plenary When Everyone Leads: How Our Toughest Challenges Get Seen and Solved.

Discover how McPherson County used a data-gathering exercise to determine the most pressing opportunities facing towns in their county which they used to convene leaders, gain alignment on critical investment opportunities, and launch targeted investments that enabled local ownership of the projects.

Finish strong by learning how the U.S. Department of Ag and other federal agencies can become a partner in community and rural development.

Or, make your own schedule of sessions from the conference agenda.
