The member discussion community is a collection of online discussion lists where members are encouraged to ask questions, share successes, and respond to other members with tips and good practices.
Participation in these communities is an exclusive member benefit and a wonderful way to connect with other funders. If you’re ready to join the discussion, read our tips sheet, or click on one of the discussion communities below:
- General Discussion Community – For all topics related to philanthropy with few or no staff
- Community Foundations – For members and non-members that are Community Foundations
- International Philanthropy – For funders interested in global philanthropy
- Very Small Funders – For funders with less than $5 million in assets and 1 or no paid staff
“What I love about the General Discussion Community is that it is a place to hear and learn from colleagues. A recent discussion raised an issue that our foundation has covered in the past, but after seeing some thought-provoking additional perspectives from other foundations, I’ve added another item to our next Strategy Committee meeting agenda!” Lindsey Stammerjohn, John Gogian Family Foundation
Advisors and consultants who are not trustees or staff, or who do not serve functionally as staff, are not eligible to participate in the community.
