Funders’ Group on Parent Organizing, Family Engagement, and Leadership Development Annual Convening

On December 6th and 7th, the Funders’ Group on Parent Organizing, Family Engagement, and Leadership Development (Funders’ Group) will hold its annual Convening at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in Princeton, New Jersey.

The mission of the Funders’ Group on Parent Organizing, Family Engagement, and Leadership Development is to support and highlight the voice, expertise, and leadership of parents and caregivers from low-income communities and communities of color, working in partnership with all parents and caregivers, to influence programs and policies that impact families.

The Funders’ Group brings together local, state, regional, and national foundation professionals in a national network to engage in information sharing, joint learning, and networking activities that lead to financial, capacity building, convening, and other supports to parent leadership efforts. Learn more about the Funders’ Group.

The Funders’ Group annual Convening will be an opportunity for national, state, and local foundations to learn about best practices in parent leadership and foundation grantmaking, and joint funding and partnership opportunities. It will also be an opportunity to roll-up your sleeves and help co-create the work of the Funders’ Group.

Casey Foundation (Co-Chair); Anita Black, Greater Rochester Health Foundation; Lynda Parmely, Consultant; Jenefer O’Dell, Kellogg Foundation; Allison Gray, Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health; Ada Sanchez, Peppercorn Foundation (Co-Chair); and Maisha Simmons, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
