Philanthropy Southwest’s Annual Conference consistently draws several hundred trustees and staff attendees from grantmaking organizations of all types and sizes. Registration is open to trustees and staff of grantmaking organizations and provides the opportunity to

connect with fellow philanthropists located or making investments in the Southwestern United States. Conference participants report that they are energized by the sessions they attend, inspired to collaborate, and motivated to find opportunities for change within their communities. Thank you to our Annual Conference Committee, who volunteers their time and skills to shape an Annual Conference at which foundation leaders can learn from one another and subject matter experts across the nation.
