The Solutions to Poverty Conference was held at Harvard Divinity School and was a one-day conference held in 2007 and 2008. The goal of the conference was to bring together university students and faculty and community government and private-sector workers in a collaborative learning and entrepreneurial workshop, developing grassroots projects for revitalizing urban communities throughout Boston.

Our Connection

Mission Grant. Believing in the power of collaboration, the Skees Family Foundation wanted to bring together students and faculty, nonprofit and community leaders, to see what social problems they could tackle by combining their ideas and resources. We contributed to each conference with the hopes of encouraging local, collaborative solutions to local issues.
