Day 3: June 23, 2017

A key component of WTXRPD is the final day – a series of roundtable sessions. Each funder is assigned a table, and nonprofit representatives rotate from table to table. Each session begins with the funder introducing her or his funding entity (foundation, corporation, or government agency), its funding purposes, and focus areas in less than five minutes.
