Strengthening Communities

Explore how community philanthropy can candidly foster inclusive economies, unlock latent local talent to address our communities biggest challenges, and foster vibrant and resilient communities that are reflective of all people. This two part virtual Zoom webinar series is in response to the cancelled CFUnited: Power of Place Conference that was to be held in Detroit, Michigan this past April.

In conversations across the country with foundations leaders who generously helped to crystalize the Council’s vision for the future, one thing was clear. These philanthropic leaders are devoted to the missions and communities they support and are constantly looking for ways to do more.

This webinar will discuss the impacts of digital transformation on the role of technology, what a strategic IT roadmap looks like, and how your entire organization benefits when IT is aligned with your mission and business. We'll also review examples of successes in our sector, lessons learned, and emerging considerations for the future.

Sometimes the greatest thing to come from building relationships and networks beyond your own borders—with peers in the US and even beyond— is merely a rehearsal for something you don’t even know you are rehearsing. You never know when or how those relationships will materialize into something more. Politics aside, migration is complicated for both sides of the border.
