Appalachia Funders Network

learning. analysis. collaboration.

Welcome Session

Thank you to all who attended and helped make “The Power of Partnerships” in Athens, OH a huge success! Over 150 grantmakers, federal agency representatives, bankers, entrepreneurs, and local development practitioners worked together to identify shared strategies for accelerating the economic transition of Central Appalachia.

Check back this summer for the Gathering Proceedings Paper. It will share our learning and analysis and the  strategies we identified to advance a just and sustainable Appalachian transition.
