Community Foundation Working Group

2016 Annual Conference - Community FoundationsCommunity foundations have unique local leadership as the core of place-based philanthropy in the United States and around the world. While all have goals specific to their diverse communities, a community foundation learns a great deal by exploring its colleagues’ strategies and tactics. The Council will bring some of the field’s leading minds together to foster this exploration.
