The Collective Impact Forum, an initiative of FSG and the Aspen Institute Forum for Community Solutions, invites you to attend the field’s premier annual collective impact convening on May 6-8, 2020, in Minneapolis, MN.

The 2020 Collective Impact Convening will attract more than 800 funders, backbone leaders, and other collective impact partners. Funders can attend a funder-only pre-conference on the funders’ role in collective impact, including how to evaluate systems change, address power dynamics, and contribute to changing narratives/mindsets. Representatives from Annie E. Casey Foundation, Ford Foundation, Living Cities, McKnight Foundation, Minnesota Council on Foundations, Minnesota Department of Health, New Profit, Trident United Way, and Women’s Foundation of Minnesota are among the 2020 convening speakers.

Highlights include:

  • May 6th Funder Pre-Conference: Funders can participate in a funder-only pre-conference dialogue on the morning of Wednesday, May 6. During the pre-conference, attendees will participate in a mix of large group and small group dialogue on the funders’ role in collective impact, including how to evaluate systems change, address power dynamics, and contribute to changing narratives/mindsets.
  • Plenary speakers Becky Margiotta (Billons Institute), Trabian Shorters (BMe Community), and a special performance and facilitated discussion on identity and personal narrative with Penumbra Theatre
