Support Our Work
At CFLeads, we strive to embody our mission, vision, and values in all that we do — but we don’t do it alone.

We work with community foundation leaders and national funders from across the country to identify, design and execute learning opportunities for community foundations that strengthen our collective community leadership and, ultimately, our community impact.

Through our collaborative approach centered on peer learning, we’ve built a growing network of community foundations from coast to coast who invest in CFLeads. An investment in CFLeads signals support for our community leadership work and an interest in ensuring that community foundations have unique and valuable learning opportunities that aren’t available anywhere else.

Become a Community Foundation Investor

Community foundations who invest CFLeads receive free access to our webinars, discounts on our other learning opportunities, and an invitation to our biennial Fall Forum.

While we are not a membership organization, investments from community foundations are invaluable in helping the field develop and strengthen its community leadership capacity.

Any contribution is welcome and encouraged, though we have identified suggested investments based on the operating budget for the most recently completed fiscal year (Management & General Expenses under Section IX, Line 25 in the 990) below.

  • Up to $999,999: $1,000
  • $1,00,000 – $1,999,999: $5,000
  • $2,00,000 – $2,999,999: $10,000
  • $3,000,000 – $3,999,999: $15,000
  • $4,000,000 – $4,999,999: $20,000
  • $5,000,000 or higher: $25,000

Contributions can be made online or by mail. Please make checks payable to CFLeads and send to:

PO Box 509
Accord, MA 02018
