Wednesday, May 27, 2020
May 27-29, 2020

The 2020 conference will take place from May 27 11:30AM to May 29, 11:30AM at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton, Oregon. We anticipate up to 200 participants, each representing all levels of the philanthropic community.

This year’s theme, The Past, Present, and Future of Philanthropy, will explore:

  • Our region’s past;
  • How we utilize our resources to influence and support current community issues;
  • New ideas and insights that will shape our future as a funding community.
The 2020 GOSW Conference is an opportunity to deepen your understanding of philanthropic history so that you can leverage that knowledge into future practices. Our goal is to create a learning environment that is rooted in a sense of community. You will be immersed in inspiring stories, shared experiences, and community learning that examines why, where and how philanthropy supports communities throughout our region. Be prepared for an experience that not only connects you to your colleagues in the field, but incites you to imagine and build collaborative and innovative funding strategies for the future.
“The more you know your history, the more liberated you are.”—Maya Angelou
