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, created exclusively for community foundation CEOs and board chairs.

The following recommended annual investments are based on community foundation asset size:

  • Less than $25 million: $500 – $1,000
  • $25 million to $100 million: $1,000 – $5,000
  • $101 million to $500 million: $5,000 – $10,000
  • More than $500 million: $10,000 – $25,000
