Widening the Tent: Building Relationships for Community Leadership
Originally presented June 11, 2009

Description: Fundamental to a community foundation's ability to catalyze and unite its community for a better tomorrow is its success in nurturing and employing a wide range of relationships – with donors, board members, nonprofits, civic heads, neighborhood leaders, funders, public officials and more.

Join a free webinar to hear how the Baltimore Community Foundation and The Denver Foundation are building relationships that maximize community involvement and strengthen the foundations' capacity for community leadership. Our presenters – both members of the National Task Force on Community Leadership – will describe approaches for tapping board members, donors and their networks in community leadership work, nurturing new leaders, and engaging those most affected in community problem-solving.

This is the second webinar highlighting essential elements of the Community Leadership Framework. Click here to view the first webinar, on the Framework's building block on Values, Culture and Will.
