2021-2025 Strategic Direction

2021 was a year of focus and renewal for the Council on Foundations. Guided by a new 20-year vision for the sector, we collaborated with our member community to create lasting impact through knowledge products, field training programs, and more.

As we continue to navigate a new normal amid a global pandemic, philanthropy has a moral obligation to create spaces for everyone’s voice to be heard, valued, and represented in building common ground to achieve more together. How do we advance the greater good in our community? How do we build trust among donors to tackle old, perpetual problems in new ways? How do we build our capacity to lead in courageous ways in a climate that is more politically charged than ever before? Where is the balance in our dialogue as we work to allow others in? What does the roadmap look like for the future?
