Mark your calendar!

Next year marks 20 years of the North Carolina Network of Grantmakers, and we can't wait to celebrate with you! The 2022 conference will be a reflection of NCNG's mission to connect, equip and inspire grantmakers to elevate the people and places of North Carolina.

We hope the sessions will drive toward our vision that all communities in North Carolina are valued and thriving, and are empowered and supported by a robust philanthropic network. The team is working hard to ensure that the speakers and content embody our core values of integrity, inclusion, community, collaboration and curiosity.

NCNG: Connect, Equip and Inspire will take place March 7-10, 2022. We're hopeful that you'll be able to choose what works best for you:

  1. A Day 1 in-person option with a keynote, roundtable discussion session, and birthday celebration, followed by three additional days of online sessions, or
  2. A fully virtual conference with live streaming of the opening keynote, roundtables and a fun online networking event.

We're still working out all of the details and watching the evolving public health guidelines closely. It is our hope that the conference agenda will be clearly laid out by the time registration opens in November (fingers crossed!).

Either way, know that you can count on the amazing Conference Planning Committee to help develop thoughtful and engaging content! Keep an eye on our e-news for keynote announcements and session details as they become available.
