Foundation Co-sponsors Economic Development Conference in Philadelphia

The George Gund Foundation is a co-sponsor of the “Reinventing Older Communities: How Does Place Matter?” conference sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia March 26–28 in that city.

The conference, being held for the third time, has become a meeting ground for policymakers, community developers, lenders, funders, planners and government representatives who want to learn from leading practitioners and researchers around the country. The conference will include reports on academic research about critical urban issues, a panel of European mayors explaining how they have reinvigorated their cities and how-to sessions on using geographic information system mapping to revitalize stagnant markets.
