Women's Collective Giving Grantmakers Network

Collective Giving Grantmaker National Conferences

Through WCGN, members have a variety of tools to network virtually, however we also understand that women hunger to meet, work, talk, and network with other like-minded women in person. 

With that in mind, every 18 months WCGN convenes an exciting educational conference and celebration of women’s collective giving grantmaking hosted by a member organization in its own hometown. Beyond providing plenty of opportunities for face-to-face networking, our Collective Giving National Conferences feature inspirational speakers in the field of philanthropy, educational workshops, and panel discussions covering front-and-center issues in collective giving. Speakers include outside experts and our own members.

The 6th National Leadership Forum hosted by the Women's Giving Alliance (Jacksonville, FL) inspired 250 women by sharing resources with peers and forging new partnerships across the country.  

Attendees from our National Conferences were asked 'What were the highlights of the conference?' and here's what they had to say:

"For me it was the conversations with the women I met that made me feel empowered and connected."

"This conference offered the right topics for my personal growth as a leader. "

"The quality of the workshops--clear that the presenters invested a great deal of time and thought in their development."   

'We exchanged best practices and learned what has NOT worked, got new ideas and shared approaches.'

"The small affinity groups gave us an opportunity to network and meet other women."
