2017 Bush Foundation Events

Building and strengthening connections among people
working to make the region better for everyone.

bushCONNECT On the Road

We believe in the power of events to inspire, equip and connect people to think bigger and think differently about what is possible in our communities. In 2017, we offered 225 scholarships to people from our region to attend national events together. Scholars went to the Aspen Ideas Festival, Independent Sector, MCON, PopTech, SOCAP and the Social Innovation Summit.

Event Sponsorship

The Bush Foundation sponsors events across the region where people can share ideas and build stronger networks. 

Bush Foundation Events

Bush Foundation staff and board members travel and host events across the region. In 2017, we held our Board Retreat and reception in Fargo, North Dakota; receptions in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Minneapolis, Minnesota; and other gatherings  to connect our Fellows, grantees and others doing important work to make our region better for everyone.
