Event description

Description

At the close of the CT Council for Philanthropy Annual Conference, join Sustainable CT funders, staff, board members, partners and participating communities for an interactive post-conference reception.

We invite you to experience this powerful program built for civic engagement, community solutions and innovation, and civic infrastructure building. Sustainable CT's momentum and results continue to rise with almost 50% of CT's 169 towns participating, and 22 towns and cities certified in the inaugural year (2018). Sustainability is looked at holistically from environmental resources through health and wellness, culture, equity, thriving communities, physical infrastructure, public services and more.

You will learn about an unique partnership with ioby (in our back yards) - a robust crowdfunding platform grounded in community-led positive change, connections and trust that neighbors know what's best for the neighborhood. This fledgling statewide partnership will open doors for funders who want to be a part of a 1:1 funding match (philanthropic dollars and crowdsourced funding) for projects that meet the Sustainable CT roadmap. This is an exciting and emerging story of how funding and decision making can be democratized, how philanthropic investment can be doubled, and how community capacity can be enhanced.

Reserve your spot today!
