Tapping into the vibrant yet often invisible transnational communities and recognizing local solutions are borrowed and replicated by community foundations around the world is more commonplace and increasingly important to our field. From raising assets to deploying them, establishing more robust engagement channels to deepening community impact, how place is defined by the people that inhabit it will continue to influence how the modern community foundation achieves a deeper sense of community for all.

Community foundation leaders from across the United States and around the world will share examples of how global frameworks, transnational relationships, and vital city partnerships are yielding new results and emerging best practices for the modern community foundation.


  • Deborah Ellwood, CEO, CFLeads
