Building Policy Advocacy & Grassroots Organizing Capacity to Improve Economic Security: A Conversation for Missouri Funders

Thank you to all who joined us in April for an initial, virtual conversation of in-state and national philanthropic leaders who support Missouri economic security initiatives. We heard an overview of the current MO landscape from grassroots leaders and began to connect dots across the funder ecosystem.

In this follow-on conversation, we will bring together a smaller group of deeply invested funder partners to engage in a strategic conversation to continue to understand one another's work to improve economic security and discuss field gaps as well as areas of potential funder alignment. Participants should be prepared for a highly interactive work session where they share their work in the ecosystem.

We will gather in St. Louis on Tuesday, October 24, from 9:30am to 2:30pm. We will hold an optional networking dinner the evening of Monday, October 23.

Seats are limited to funders investing in Missouri; participation is by invitation. If you engage in related funding work and would like to participate, please request an invitation by contacting Michelle Miller, PhilMO CEO, at michelle (at) philmo (dot) org. 


Special thanks to partners Economic Opportunity Funders and Tax Equity Funders Network for joining Philanthropy Missouri in hosting this conversation.
