This Forum is for:

  • Community Foundation practitioners

It’s also the perfect venue for those people from communities seeking to learn about the Community Foundation movement and what it can achieve for their community. Any community or group seeking to investigate the idea of a Community Foundation should have representatives attend this Forum.
