The decisions your foundation make don’t happen in a vacuum. It is essential to get into the community to learn from people and organizations on the ground enacting change. Understanding the landscape and engaging with community voices will allow your foundation board to make fully informed decisions, be responsive to its community, and identify the best positioned solutions to advance its goals. By the end of this module participants will be able to:
- Understand how to scan the landscape of your community
- Identify ways your board can go out into the community and bring the community into the board room
Complement your learning with a copy of the Trustee Handbook: Essentials for Effective Foundation Board Members.
