PhilEx Live: Strategies for Programmatic Changes in Response to COVID-19

Developed out of a trending conversation on the Philanthropy Exchange (PhilEx), the Council invites you to join a peer-led discussion of how community foundations are adapting programmatic strategy to deliver their core mission amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Join peers from community foundations across the country to discuss how they are adjusting their existing programs and workloads to prepare for the ongoing shifts in community needs that will continue to unfold over the coming months as we move from crisis response to recovery. Attendees will discuss topics that include:

  • New ways of working to increase collaboration with other funders to meet the dramatic increase in needs
  • Changes to grantmaking or other community leadership programs
  • Adjustments to scholarship programs
  • Adjusting staffing needs and focus to help monitor, design and execute programming

  • Trisha Finnegan, Senior Vice President & Chief Strategy Officer, Community Foundation of Louisville, KY
  • Noah Atencio, Vice President of Community Impact, Community First Foundation, CO
  • Brad Ward, Lead Strategist, Community Philanthropy Council on Foundations (Moderator)
