2021 Annual Convening
Exploring diversity to lead social change
We hosted our Annual Convening in October. Even though we pivoted last minute to a virtual meeting, this did not deter us from having in-depth conversations about how philanthropy can have a positive or negative impact on the resolution of issues impacting Puerto Rico. It is noticeable that our collective continues to mature.
Welcome to our Annual Convening!
‘Exploring Diversity to Lead Social Change’ will be our theme for 2021, as this has permeated the zeitgeist, both locally and nationally, and we must use that momentum to give visibility to those that are lacking it.
After a very challenging pandemic period, we’re excited to see you in-person in our two meet & greet events, to visit a community and to virtually continue learning and discussing the work being done.
Go ahead and register and we’ll keep you up-to-date with more details!
Please keep in mind that this is a grantmakers-only event, but open to both FiPR members and non-members interested in philanthropic work in Puerto Rico.

Culture, Participation & Privacy Guidelines
We want you to experience our annual convening as a chance to continue building our philanthropic community by enabling collaborative discussions that allow diverse grantmakers to work together and scale up their impact in Puerto Rico. Discussions should be lively, yet respectful, and always seek to bridge the gaps between diverse opinions, cultures, interests, and backgrounds, while staying focused on our mission to improve the lives of the marginalized.
