Interconnected: Effecting Positive Change Together

As practitioners in philanthropy, we are inherently connected. We are tied together by a shared love of humanity, a desire to contribute to lasting positive change, and by our common experience of what is happening in the world around us.

The past three years have presented challenge after challenge, highlighting the divisions and disparities that have long been prevalent within our society. With long-standing structural racism, inequities in health and education and beyond, attacks on women’s health, food insecurity, assaults on democracy, worsening climate change, global wars impacting us here at home, and a deep political polarization, there is clearly no shortage of issues to address.

At the same time, philanthropy in Massachusetts has risen to meet the needs in communities across the state, through support for direct services to capacity building, to research and advocacy. The sector has sought to understand and address root causes, learn from communities and nonprofit partners, and identify opportunities for collaborative action. We have made new connections and strengthened existing ones, across identities, issues, and regions, playing a major role in our effectiveness and impact.

At this year’s annual meeting, we will explore our connections and the ways they strengthen individual and collective contributions toward positive change that endures. Come with an eagerness to learn. Leave with inspiration and actionable ideas in our move towards a more just and equitable society.

Speakers and presenters are forthcoming.
