Conferences at the Bellagio Center invite leaders working in a wide array of disciplines and coming from many geographies to advance ideas for social impact and catalyze concrete action that has the potential to drive positive and far-reaching change. The Center’s serene setting promotes expansive and innovative thinking, and its intimate quarters encourage dynamic small group interactions and focused, goal-oriented work.

The Rockefeller Foundation has a strong interest in conference proposals that align with its mission “to promote the well-being of humanity,” particularly through issues that have a direct impact on the lives of poor and vulnerable populations around the world. These issues include but are not limited to health, economic opportunity and jobs, urban resiliency, food and agriculture, clean energy, the field of philanthropy, and innovation for development.

Conference applications are selected through a competitive process and successful applications are provided facilities, accommodations, and some travel support.

Applications are available on our online application portal along with detailed instructions and further information on applying to the Bellagio Conference Program. We strongly recommend that applicants carefully review this information prior to beginning an application.

Conference applications are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed at interim deadlines. The next review dates in 2018 are September 4 and November 1.

"For small ideas, you can go to any retreat, but to think expansive, fearless ideas and then design something innovative and courageous to put them into practice, there is no place like Bellagio."
