We’re on a Listening Tour across America’s nonprofit sector!

Since 2013, we’ve shared our work and learned from leaders in communities large and small.

Our events are high-energy, interactive, and inclusive of different styles of adult learning. We share ideas that are informed by research, and offer tools that are informed by the field. And we lift-up the wisdom of those in the room. Most of all, we strive to empower participants to maximize investment in the nonprofit workforce.

We offer keynote speeches, funder briefings, retreats, conference plenaries and concurrent sessions, webinar, guest presentations in classes, and workshops. We prefer to partner with associations of funders, nonprofits, or other stakeholders to bring our content to national, regional and local communities.

If you are interested in bringing Fund the People to present in your community or association, please contact Director of Programs Yolanda Caldera-Durant at (203) 701-8887 or yolanda at fundthepeople dot org.
