SLS #1 - Disasters and Donors: Bridging the Gap Between Climate Change and Philanthropy

07/27/2023 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM MT


  • Free


Join us for a panel session on how the philanthropic community can come together to aid communities facing environmental crises.


July 27th from 2pm-3pm MST


Every Coloradan has a story about a natural disaster or climate crisis. Each summer, we hold our breath hoping to make it through the season without wildfires, and this year we've seen historic rain and hail that has caused devastating flash floods in some parts of the state, while in others our rivers run dry. In times of disaster and crisis, the philanthropic community is called upon to provide resources and aid. How can we keep evolving to meet these service needs as climate change continues to throw more individuals and communities into times of unpredictability and crisis? Join us on July 27th from 2-3pm for a panel discussion led by conservation and environmental organizations, and learn more about how you and your teams can be ready to face these serious challenges.

**This is our first session of our annual three-part Summer Learning Series (SLS). These events will always be free for Community Shares members.
