About the conference
The inaugural Givers, Doers, and Thinkers conference will take place in Scottsdale, Arizona, on November 17th. This daylong conference is the first in a series of events that will convene donors and civil society leaders to discuss and to develop ways to strengthen American civil society. Our aim is to advance a robust vision for charitable giving that is grounded in the Judeo-Christian understanding of charity, to champion local giving, and to share ideas on how to conserve the natural and cultural goods of our communities and our nation.
