Philanthropy in rural communities is a powerful tool for revitalization and sustainability. On June 6, 2019, Ryan Gibson shared preliminary research findings at the All In 2019 Conference, hosted by Community Foundations of Canada.

The presentation was part of a larger discussion on rural philanthropy that explored trends, the importance of place and creative opportunities happening in rural communities. Participants worked collectively to spark new thinking through networking discussions about the vitality of rural Canada, what is possible for the future, and the leadership roles foundations can play to identify what is unique, what relationships we need to build and what else do we need to know for our investments to be one that is transformational.
