We are pleased to announce that Governor Ned Lamont will address the philanthropic community at CCP's State Budget Impact Forum.

Statewide meeting open to CCP members.

CCP's State Budget Impact Forum will bring the philanthropic community together to deepen its understanding of the state of the state - what current economic projections are, what they mean for the state budget, and how those factors will impact the issues philanthropy is most deeply focused on: education, health and economic security.

Join your grantmaking colleagues and other leaders as we discuss these critical issues and how the philanthropic community can engage. Breakfast will be provided.

Grantmakers will:

  • leave with a strong working understanding of the issues the state faces and what that means for the issues and communities they care about.
  • learn about solutions and opportunities to shift the trajectory and what they need to accomplish those shifts.
  • receive inspiration and ideas for action.

Presented by the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy and sponsored by The Nutmeg Foundation.
