Practitioner Membership

Develop Your Mission-Related Investing Skills as a Confluence Practitioner

Membership in the Practitioners' Program is open to organizations and individual donors who seek to deepen their practice in mission-related investing  by working collaboratively and strategically with other grantmakers. Practitioners have general clarity about their mission-related investing goals, as well as organizational support for—or a strong personal commitment to—those objectives.

Why Join the Practitioners' Program?

In addition to the services offered through Basic Membership, Practitioners benefit from the enhanced services and engagement provided by increased membership.  Practitioners join in a peer-to-peer community through which they can share knowledge, construct ideas, deepen best practices, and foster collaboration.

Practitioners’ Program Goals

  • To build a community of experienced practitioners in mission-related investing
  • To increase the capacity of Confluence practitioners through technical assistance, peer-to-peer learning, and collaboration
  • To accelerate the field of mission-related investing by fostering systemic thinking, effective partnerships, and innovation within philanthropy

Practitioners are eligible to all the benefits of Associate Membership plus:

  • Free registration in the Annual Practitioners’ Meeting for one foundation member and discounted participation for additional representatives
  • A community of practice that shares costs in building and maintaining collaborative funds
  • Participation in member-initiated projects, working groups, and learning cohorts
  • Invitations to Practitioner-level learning and strategy meetings
  • Networking opportunities to serve as spokespersons for the field at Confluence co-sponsored events
