Grantmakers Strive to Strengthen Philanthropy in San Diego, featured in Times of San Diego, November 27th 2014.
“On Nov. 14, nearly 160 representatives of foundations, corporate giving programs, and individual donors gathered in Balboa Park for the San Diego Grantmakers annual conference to learn from national experts and local leaders about how to improve the impact of philanthropy in our region. It was a day of “Cultivating Philanthropy, Seeding Change” to develop the skills, knowledge, and connectedness of people who are passionate and strategic about their charitable giving. San Diego has fewer philanthropic institutions compared to Los Angeles and San Francisco, so it’s especially important that we work together to leverage our resources and attract outside funding to our region. The conference helps do that, as the largest annual convening for grantmakers in our region.”
