FOR FUNDERS ONLY: Jan. 24-25 Event: Haiti Funders Meeting at The Boston Foundation



The Haiti Fund at The Boston Foundation
and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation invite institutional funders, philanthropists and advisors to join an array of Haiti funders to share lessons and explore new partnerships.  Three years after the earthquake in Haiti and the rush of international aid and donations, progress has been made, but much remains to be done to help Haitians build a more just, vibrant, and self-sufficient society.  Private funders can help Haiti “kenbe fem” (keep strong) by working together within and across sectors to identify the most promising approaches and strategies.

Friday, January 25, 2013 8:00 am – 5 pm: Keynote Speeches, Panel Discussions, and Small Working Groups
