Grantmakers for Education, through its longstanding collaboration with the Harvard Graduate School of Education, presents the 2018 Education Grantmakers Institute: Political and Social Equity in Education on April 23-25.

Philanthropy is a driver of civil society. It fuels the programs and movements that shape our culture across communities. In this role, foundations are uniquely situated with the experience and expertise to lead the way forward on issues that affect people throughout our nation and across the globe. As leaders in philanthropy, it is our civic duty to extend this leadership to provide expert input in the policymaking process.

CFUnited is the opportunity for those in development, communications, and programs to come together to network and learn about best practices and new developments in the CF world. CFUnited is proud to have the Council of Foundations as a very valued partner of this year's conference. In addition to speakers from Foundations and consultants from across the country, we're fortunate to welcome Brad Ward and Bryan Del Rosario of COF as guest speakers this year.
