Key Initiative

Funder Learning

  • Cohort-based
  • For Funders

We design cohort-based programs for executive-level leaders in place-based, private, health, and community foundations. Participants are committed to shifting their institution’s investment capital into the communities they serve, and into alignment with their mission.

Programs are designed to increase a foundation’s ability to overcome barriers to mission-aligned investing, such as culture, strategy, capacity, and opportunity flow. We leverage peer exchange, collaborative leadership, coaching, systems thinking, and supported inquiries into power, privilege, and equity. Participants will have access to resources and expert faculty who provide tailored support and guidance towards institutional goals.

Forty-five foundation leaders have participated to date, collectively shifting over $250M out of traditional Wall Street investments into the communities they serve.
