Issues We Work On

Issues We Work On
We work with community foundations to galvanize action around critical issues of our time through unique peer networks and events.

Our issues-based work takes many forms, from multi-meeting learning networks to single-day symposiums and online webinars. The issues we work on are ever-evolving as different priorities arise for communities across the country. This page features a few of the issues we are currently focused on.

We are also grateful to have a network of community foundations willing to share their experiences around a wide range of issues with their peers. These stories will be featured on our blog.
