About the Tour

Since its founding, Independent Sector has been the “vital meeting ground” for leaders in the nonprofit and philanthropic sector. The Listening Tour offers the latest way for us to provide meeting space for intimate conversations between Independent Sector leadership and sector leaders across the country. Together, we will take stock of where we’ve been and inform our strategic planning for future plans and initiatives.

While we are excited to visit cities across the country, we understand that so many incredible sector leaders live and work all over this country. To ensure an inclusive perspective in our feedback, we are excited to offer a free, virtual Listening Tour Town Hall in 2024.

Thank you for taking the time to inform our collective work to create a healthy and equitable sector and nation where all people thrive.
