Communications & Convenings

We believe that sharing stories of the people and organizations in which we invest can amplify their impact in the region and beyond.

Thinking bigger and thinking differently about what is possible in our communities requires exposure to new people and new ideas. To that end, we create and support events that inspire, equip and connect people across the region we serve.
