Second Annual Funders Summit Gathers Local Philanthropists | Press Release

On May 14, 2019, nearly 50 area funders gathered at Danversport to join Essex County Community Foundation, Philanthropy Massachusetts and the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation for the 2nd Annual Funders Summit.

This year’s summit focused on the topic of education and the intersection between education and other social issues. Attendees had the opportunity to join in a discussion grounded in education-related data from ECCF’s indicators platform,  Impact Essex County, learn about both existing and prospective funding efforts in the region and explore opportunities to coordinate efforts, co-fund initiatives and work together to improve the quality of life for residents of Essex County.

It was a terrific morning filled with meaningful discussion, collaboration and networking.

Though the long-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students is not yet fully known, what we do know – and what the early data confirms – is that learning has suffered, equity gaps have widened and the time to come together to create systems that work for all students is now.
