If you have philanthropic partners interested in 2Gen grantmaking who are interested in learning more about the field, please share this invitation with them. This convening is for funders only.

Two-generation programs and policies, which create opportunities for children and the adults in their lives together, have gained significant momentum over the last few years. Close to 50 million dollars have been invested in two-generation approaches, with over 100 projects being implemented across the country and many more on the horizon. Now is an important time to take a collective look at current grantmaking strategies and share learnings thus far. Please join national 2Gen funding and grantmaking leaders and Ascend at the Aspen Institute in Washington, DC for this important convening.
