Council Member Resources

The Council on Foundations exists to provide the opportunity, leadership, and tools philanthropic organizations need to make a meaningful difference. As a national organization with a large and diverse membership, the Council possesses a unique ability to offer strategic leadership for philanthropy in its many forms.

In helping foundations LEAD TOGETHER, the Council aims to help grantmakers leverage their resources for common purposes.

Our field is strongest when foundations collaborate in their efforts to address today’s toughest challenges, like the climate crisis, justice reform, or rural flight. To make a difference, we need to act together. Informed by the most innovative thinkers in the field, the Council continuously works to provide our members with key programmatic and policy support, especially around:

  • Professional development
  • Knowledge sharing
  • Public policy leadership
