INTERMOUNTAIN WEST FUNDER NETWORK 2018 CONVENING

May 2, 2018 - May 4, 2018

INTERMOUNTAIN WEST FUNDER NETWORK 2018 CONVENING
MAY 2 – 4 | SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO

Join us in Santa Fe, N.M., May 2-4 for the annual convening of the Intermountain West Funder Network. This year’s event will focus on forward-looking strategies that will help funders increase the impact of their grantmaking to create more resilient, sustainable and equitable communities in the Intermountain West region.
What will we be learning and sharing in Santa Fe? Here are just some of the highlights:

  • Explore Santa Fe to learn firsthand about sustainable development issues in and around “The City Different” during our May 2 site visit.
  • Hear how the protection of the diverse cultural heritages and sacred places in New Mexico ties into resilience from our keynote speaker, Theresa Pasqual, a leading voice on tribal resource management and sacred site protection, and a member of the Acoma Pueblo.
  • Learn strategies about how to foster land and water resilience, support sustainable agriculture and regional food systems, and create more inclusive communities and local economies — to name just a few topics we’ll explore during our sessions.
  • Join us for an Opening Night Reception and Dinner that will highlight “State of Change: Building Resilience in New Mexico” part of a multi-pronged storytelling project examining issues in western communities supported by High Country News, the Solutions Journalism Network, and the LOR Foundation.
  • Experience how supporting creative industries can create local economic development at our funder-only dinner at Meow Wolf, a Santa Fe-based arts and entertainment group that creates immersive, interactive art experiences.
  • Register today – and look forward to seeing you in Santa Fe!
