Fall Forum 2023

Fall Forum 2023

Community foundations are constantly anticipating and adapting to change. Changes in climate, demographics, technology, local, state and federal laws and more can profoundly impact our communities.

Change is also a constant in the community foundation field, with a growing commitment to community leadership competing with leadership transitions, an unpredictable economy, and unexpected challenges like pandemics and natural disasters.

This year, community foundations will come together at the Fall Forum to explore how they can “lead through change,” sharing their experiences, successes and lessons learned while hearing from inspirational and motivational content experts.


The Fall Forum is open to community foundation CEOs and board chairs (or other board members) that are investors of CFLeads.

This year, we are also inviting new community foundation CEOs (as of 2022 or later) to join us along with a board member.

If you are interested in attending but are not an investor or a new CEO, please visit Support Our Work or contact Mary Thomas, CFLeads President & CEO to learn more.
