EdFunders’ 25th Annual Conference – 2021

Grantmakers for Education


October 12 - 22, 2021

Registrants can attend sessions on demand here through January.

Centered on improving outcomes for every learner, our annual conferences are designed to challenge education philanthropists as they adapt to a rapidly evolving field that is ever more interconnected.

Highly rated year after year, our conferences unite funders and experts in exploration of the deep and sometimes thorny education and philanthropic issues on the horizon.

Celebrating 25 Years: A Vision for the Future of Learning and Justice

At this transformational time in American education, Grantmakers for Education is marking an important milestone: our annual conference is now in its 25th year. We came together to reaffirm our commitment to supporting learners and to work toward a vision for the next 25 years. This past year’s historic upheavals in race relations and in our economic and public health systems have shifted the role of schools, postsecondary institutions, and other learning venues.

Keynotes included Kerry Washington and Dena Simmons

We are excited to have presented a robust conference experience with plenaries, workshops, a case study and 70 learning sessions live streamed directly to you, October 12 - 22.

Registration is closed.
