On May 2-3, 2023, VFN hosted its 2nd annual conference at The Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center in beautiful Roanoke, Virginia. With nearly 225 philanthropic leaders in attendance from across the Commonwealth, this event was one of the largest gatherings of Virginia’s philanthropic community.
The 2023 conference theme – Stronger Together: Building Our Future – was carefully crafted to advance VFN’s new strategic framework. The two-day agenda intentionally focused on how philanthropy can work together across sectors to advance opportunities where all Virginia communities are valued and thriving and are empowered and supported by a strong and vibrant philanthropic sector.
