We had 277 individuals participate in the conference, including 214 from community foundations. The conference, held in Denver from September 10-13, had a 19% increase in attendance over the 2015 FAOG Conference.
The FAOG Leadership Team appreciates everyone who participated, and is also very grateful to the generous sponsors whose underwriting enabled registration fees and meal costs to remain low.
The Leadership Team would like to thank all of the FAOG members who volunteered for one of the conference committees, as well as the excellent line up of presenters during the many sessions offered at the conference.
Here is what your community foundation colleagues and conference sponsors are saying about the conference:
