Special D Events

Foundation and Grantee Convenings and Events

In 2014, one of the top 10 largest independent foundations in the United States engaged Special D Events to conduct a global study of convening best practices. The best practices we learned from the year-long research project continue to benefit our clients today.

We are a trusted partner to multiple family, community and independent foundations because we understand the nuances of grantee convenings and community events. Sustainability and inclusivity are always top of mind.

We serve as an extension of our clients’ in-house staffs, providing strategic meeting management services that expand their ability to advance the common good. Our team is flexible, providing everything from turnkey meeting management to support with only specific areas of need.

  • Educational workshops
