Reimagining Council Membership

As We Look Forward

2019 is an important year for the Council on Foundations. Above all, we are committed to thinking creatively (and responsively) about how we best serve Council members.

A first step under the leadership of Kathleen Enright is a comprehensive review and analysis of the Council’s membership structures and dues, to ensure we are ready to achieve our mission: advancing the work of our members and the philanthropic sector.

Throughout this process, input from diverse voices is critical. We will work together to design an updated membership model that welcomes grantmakers of diverse type, size, geography, and political ideology to the Council.
