COVID-19 Information


Rescheduled Meetings

The Forbeck Foundation recognizes the fluidity of COVID-19 and its impact on hosting events in a public space. To this end, we have taken steps to minimize further exposure by postponing our spring meetings and shifting participants from the Spring Scholar Retreat to the Fall.

All meetings for 2020 and some early 2021 meetings have been rescheduled.
