Conference Registration Opening Soon

I’m thrilled to announce that registration for our 2021 International Conference will open in just a few more days.


“Strong Bonds: The Elements That Energize Jewish Philanthropy” will take place online on March 15-17. It will inspire you, inform you and – most importantly – give you a much-needed forum for connecting with other funders.

During this turbulent year, we’ve had to rethink how we live, work, relate to one another, pray, eat, travel, and — not least — how and to whom we give. Big-picture thinking about the future is more critical than ever, but must be done alongside the task of addressing the immediate needs of communal institutions and NGOs around the world. This year’s conference posits that donors in this environment must bring to bear three elements that, bonded together, form the molecular structure of Jewish philanthropy in 2021: resilience, humility, and community.

While we cannot bring our dynamic community together in person, we are combining technology and design to recreate what we miss the most: the energy of sharing a space with other people. Unlike many online events, the JFN conference will prioritize participant interaction and connectivity. In addition to offering inspiring keynote speakers, thought-provoking conversations, and skill-building workshops to help Jewish funders improve the quality and efficacy of their philanthropy, we will be providing numerous discussion and networking opportunities.

I hope you’ll join us on March 15-17, for only by being together can we strengthen the relationships, open the conversations, and generate the ideas that will carry us forward to a brighter tomorrow. Please check our website in the coming days for more details about our conference and how to register.

I look forward to seeing you online in March!
