Fall Forum

Fall Forum
DeRay McKesson, activist, speaks to Fall Forum participants after his keynote presentation "New Power, New Movements: The Case for Hope."

The CFLeads Fall Forum takes place every two years and is offered exclusively for our community foundation investors. This multi-day event is designed to bring the most forward-looking community foundation CEOs and Board members from across the country together to:

  • Discuss the role and responsibilities of community foundations as community leaders.
  • Dive into promising practices of community leadership.
  • Gather with like-minded peers to build relationships and achieve greater learning.
  • Define the future for community foundations committed to community leadership.

Our Fall Forum features thought-provoking keynote speakers who are well-versed in issues that affect the community foundation field. We also create plenty of space at the Fall Forum for frank and provocative conversations among peers. To learn more, visit the pages for our previous Fall Forums below.

Our next Fall Forum will take place in 2023 – stay tuned for more details! If you are interested in partnering on or presenting at our 2023 Fall Forum, please contact Melody MacLean at mmaclean@cfleads.org.
