ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The 2023 Annual Conference for Givers, Doers, and Thinkers will take place in Scottsdale, Arizona. The conference is the third in a series of events that will bring donors and civil society leaders together to discuss and develop ways to strengthen American civil society. The purpose of this conference series is to advance a robust vision for charitable giving that is grounded in the Judeo-Christian understanding of charity, to champion local giving, and to share ideas on how to conserve the natural and cultural goods of our communities and our nation.
You will hear featured speakers including Michael Matheson Miller from the Acton Institute and Hoover Institution Senior Fellow Shelby Steele. Our keynote speaker will be acclaimed author, Mary Eberstadt. Panel discussions will take place on topics such as religious liberty and the courts, religious educational institutions, religious ministries, and donor strategies.
While some research indicates that religious affiliation is in steep decline, the conference’s speakers and panelists will share how religiously affiliated nonprofits and donors provide hope for the future of civil society. By joining us in November, you will see how religion is still influential and does much good in the world.
If you are passionate about the fundamental role that faith plays in American society, please join us in Scottsdale this November!
