Upcoming Webinars

Developed out of a trending conversation on the Philanthropy Exchange (PhilEx), the Council invites you to join a peer-to-peer conversation for foundation staff who are currently handling American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds or are in the process of negotiating an agreement with their County/City.

In partnership with the Center for Disaster Philanthropy and Candid, the Council on Foundations are pleased to present a webinar to highlight the key learnings and provide recommendations for funders as the world continues to struggle with the impact of COVID-19.

This monthly call is for community foundations staff to connect with the National Standards staff and to ask questions related to the National Standards program.
