Welcome to FIPR 2022 Annual Convening

After all our island has been through during the last few years; hurricanes, earthquakes, a pandemic, and other social inequities, we believe that it’s time to share  those experiences and find ourselves in other people’s stories. 

In 2019, the focus was disaster recovery.  In 2020,  we delved into equity, diversity, inclusion (EDI) and began to remember our interconnectedness to create a more equitable world. 2021 was the year of recognizing that even though we are different,  all of us share the purpose of leading social change. 

This year, the importance of meaningful connection, inspiration, authentic  ideas and heartfelt conversations has shaped the 2022 in-person Annual Convening. We arrive facing unprecedented challenges, embracing uncertainty and testing our tolerance for different thoughts. By leaning in to co-create the present and future of the social sector in Puerto Rico we ask:

What can we create by coming together, recognizing fear and freedom, equity and self-interest? How can we attend and support each other to create a world in which we move forward with the same vision? By Lean In and Co-Create we mean actively accepting that challenge and seeking more responsibility to address them.

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.

You may tag us on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter, and use the #convenePR hashtag so other attendees can find your posts.

Sessions might be recorded for archival purposes and available for our members.

We may take photos or video of sessions and attendees.

This content is for FiPR use only and may appear on our website, newsletter, social media pages, or future promotional material.

While fundraising is prohibited, we do encourage you to share what you learn and to refrain from doing so if the speakers explicitly request confidentiality.

Please abide by our Culture, Participation & Privacy Policy.

COVID-19 Guidelines

Given we have in-person event, we need to ensure the health and safety of our attendees. Vaccination is not required. The meeting room should allow us to be comfortably spaced.  We will have antigen tests and masks available, but neither is mandated.  We understand that there will likely be a mix of perspectives and needs among group members, and trust that we can
negotiate norms that reflect and support that diversity.

Stay at home if you’re sick or have been in close contact with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19.
Be respectful of anyone’s desire for space, face coverings or a touchless experience.
