Regional Meeting

Protecting and Upholding the Civil Rights of All People

Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017
Santa Clara Convention Center

Registration details to come in June

SVCF's Regional Meeting is a free, annual event that is open to the public -- nonprofits, foundations, corporate representatives, and community members are invited to attend. The 2017 event will feature Anthony Romero from the American Civil Liberties Union and Jonathan Greenblatt from the Anti-Defamation League. 

In our ever-changing national environment, there are mounting concerns regarding the rights of immigrants and refugees, the spike in hate crimes against Jewish people and Muslims, women's reproductive rights, and the rights of the LGBTQ community. 

Our speakers are uniquely qualified to discuss these issues and address how the civil rights of all people can be protected and upheld.

In addition, SVCF will announce our plans for the future of our strategic grantmaking at the Regional Meeting. For more than a year, SVCF has been conducting a review of our grantmaking strategies, to ensure they continue to address our community's most pressing issues. The results of the review will be shared for the first time at the Regional Meeting.

We are also looking forward to celebrating SVCF's 10th anniversary at this year's Regional Meeting -- we hope you'll join us!

Registration details will be available in June. Until then, we hope you will save the date!

Sponsorship opportunities are available! Please contact for ways to reach diverse audiences and elevate your brand through this event.
