The context for Canadian philanthropy is changing rapidly. Funders are connecting through digital, personal, local, and global channels, leading to creative collaboration among funders and with community partners. And these collaborations are accelerating change in communities. The 7th biennial PFC conference will explore these themes of connection, creativity and social change, bringing together communities of shared goals and practices to learn together.
