2018 Convening


Mark your calendars: Our Annual Grassroots Grantee Convening will be November 15, 2018 at the First Unitarian Church in Oakland, California.


Register for the 2018 Convening here!


This year, the convening will focus on fundraising for grassroots groups. Topics will include donor advised funds, how to write a stand-out proposal, and creating effective budgets that work for your organization.


We are excited to be bringing back the Reality Grantmaking Panel, where a group of veteran funders will candidly review grant proposals live and in person.

Applications can be submitted by registrants in advance. After registering for the Convening, if you are interested in applying for the $1,000 grant on behalf of your organization, you may go to our online database and submit via the “Grassroots Convening Reality Grantmaking” application.


Agenda will be updated soon! Check back here for updates. 


Every year, the Northern California Environmental Grassroots Fund and California Wildlands Grassroots Fund host a FREE, day-long capacity-building convening.

This convening is open to ALL current and past grantees of the Northern California Environmental Grassroots Fund and the California Wildlands Grassroots Fund, as well as current Rose Foundation Fiscally Sponsored Projects.

If you are traveling more than 50 miles one-way to Oakland, you are also eligible for a travel scholarship!
