Issue Networks

Issue Networks
Our unique issue networks provide community foundations with the opportunity to apply their community leadership work to specific issues.

Over a decade, we have refined our one-of-a-kind issue network structure, offering community foundation teams the opportunity to learn from their peers and content experts as they seek to address a challenge facing their community. We offer these issue networks in partnership with national foundations on topics identified by the community foundation field.

Visit the pages below to learn more about our current community foundation issue networks. If you are interested in participating in or partnering on a future issue network, please contact Leonard Brock, Vice President of Learning and Impact (Issues), at
