GEO conferences educate and inspire action. We recognize that the best learning occurs when innovative grantmakers collaborate with their peers, especially when they are tackling the problems that challenge them the most. This type of knowledge building leads to stronger ideas, changed practice and a community that is empowered to lead even broader change in their field.

GEO Conferences are our highest rated resource.

GEO holds a biennial national conference that regularly attracts 800 grantmakers who are committed to finding ways to make progress and increase their effectiveness. GEO also holds two smaller topical conferences in odd-numbered years, including The Learning Conference. See information below to learn more about past and future conferences.

GEO members get priority access and discounted registration rates — it’s why so many of our conferences are nearly sold out before they open to nonmembers. Join today to take advantage of these special benefits!
