2014 National Conference
GEO conferences educate and inspire action. We recognize that the best learning occurs when innovative grantmakers collaborate with their peers, especially when they are tackling the problems that challenge them the most. This type of knowledge building leads to stronger ideas, changed practice and a community that is empowered to lead even broader change in their field. GEO holds a biennial national conference that regularly attracts more than 650 grantmakers who are committed to finding more efficient and effective ways to grow their impact. Previous national conferences have explored smarter grantmaking practices that lead to stronger nonprofits and better results as well as philanthropy’s role as a leader and innovator during changing times.
