Thousands of youth in our community are disconnected from education and employment, leaving them at risk of becoming trapped in poverty for the rest of their lives. Join with other local funders to explore recommendations compiled from “disconnected youth” themselves as well as leading experts in youth development. Together, we will explore how philanthropy can work to ensure all young people receive the support they need to succeed.
About the Funders' Roundtable of Montgomery County
The Funders’ Roundtable free lunch events provide representatives of local companies and foundations with an opportunity to get acquainted, learn more about Montgomery County funding priorities, and share best practices. The events are open to grantmakers only, and have anywhere from 15 to 30 attendees. Each luncheon focuses on a different funding topic – education, health care, etc.—selected in advance by the group.
Lunch is provided courtesy of our 2014 sponsors: The Community Foundation for Montgomery County, Mead Family Foundation, Jim and Carol Trawick Foundation, and the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers.
