bushCON is powered by the Bush Foundation
Drumming performance from bushCON 2015


Through an open application process, the Bush Foundation selected nearly 40 organizations from Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota to help us co-create bushCONNECT 2016. The Bush Foundation is grateful for the months of planning these organizations put in to develop the event's programming and to recruit leaders from across the region.
