about

Confluence Philanthropy's Annual Practitioners Gathering is a three-day conference for current members of the Practitioner and Advisor programs, prospective members, and invited guests. Confluence Practitioners are funders practicing mission-aligned investing, also known as impact-investing. Advisor Members represent the top investment managers and advisors in impact-investing today. Attendees are committed to building the field through strategic thinking and collaboration. It is not intended to serve as a marketplace for impact-investing. Sessions are led by funder-practitioners, investment experts, and other thought leaders.
