On April 16th, 2018, we hosted our 2018 NCG Annual Conference, the largest gathering of the philanthropic community in Northern California. This year’s conference, Together for Good, featured lead thinkers on the critical issues of our time, such as the role of media in upholding democracy, overcoming social inequality, and advancing narrative change. We dug deep into how philanthropy can – and must – bring to bear not only financial resources, but also our collective leadership, voice, action, and empathy to really move the ball.
