March 2021 Roundtable Focus

Strong Year-End Giving in 2020 — What does it mean for 2021?

CEOs, Executive Directors, and special invitation is being extended to Development Staff Leaders.  Conversation starters, designed to kick off discussions, will include:

A few questions we hope to tackle in peer sharing:

  • Most are reporting strong year-ends for 2020.  What does it tells us about 2021?
  • Where will the gaps fall in 2021, and where will the opportunities be prime?
  • What are you applying from 2020 going forward when it comes to raising dollars?
  • What is the prospect and outlook for endowment building?
  • Any tax or legal implications for 2021 our Council attorneys can share?

Roundtable Objectives

  • Strengthen our network of the community foundation field 
  • Provide the context and space for community foundation executives.
  • Highlight community responses and assess situations with the support of peers

Additional perspectives from leaders will be sought throughout the roundtable with direct involvement, as well as in small groups with peer discussion leads. Please be prepared to share video for better engagement within the platform Zoom.
