Since 1980, NFG has been a ‘political home’ for people in philanthropy: a place to connect, strengthen our analysis, and take action. Our virtual convening series: 40 Years Strong celebrates four decades of mobilizing philanthropy and brings funders together to explore what is possible in the current era of organized philanthropy.

This series began on with our 40 Years Strong plenary session on people, place and power and a second plenary that focused on philanthropy's responsibility to be accountable to communities of color and low-income communities. The convening series continued with six member-led webinars taking place between September and December.

Connect with NFG & Share Your Stories

Our celebrations of NFG’s 40th anniversary are continuing virtually as a space to draw support as we propel philanthropy to shift power and money towards justice and equity.

To help us look back on our 40 dynamic years, we are collecting stories and memories from the NFG community to share at the end of 2020. If you have a story about how NFG has supported your philanthropic leadership, how our programming has deepened your political education, or how you found co-conspirators to move more resources to racial, economic, gender, and climate justice through the NFG community, we would love to hear from you! Please fill out this form to share your story.

Thank you for being part of the NFG community.
