Day one, Wednesday, June 12, 2024, is the first official day of the 2024 Social Finance Forum. The first half of the day will be national programming hosted by Future of Good online. The second half of the day will be split between national (online) and regional (in-person) programming. The national programming in the afternoon of day one is designed to complement, rather than conflict with, regional programming so in-person attendees can meaningfully engage with their regional hosts, and online attendees continue to have rich engagement opportunities.

Learn more about in-person regional programming here.


On the second day of the 2024 Social Finance Forum, Future of Good will host national programming online.
