LEADING TOGETHER SCHEDULE MONDAY, APRIL 27 CONCURRENT SESSIONS 1:45 pm – 2:45 pm Nob Hill A/B Lower B2 Level What Type of Fund Is It? (CLE) Community foundations have many tools to connect donor resources to community needs. However, with so many tools at your disposal, it can be difficult to decide which one to use at what time. This session will provide a brief overview of the types of funds at community foundations. These funds include: • Undesignated and designated funds; • Agency component or no component funds; and • Endowed or no endowed funds. Within these categories, we will touch on field of interest, scholarship, and donor advised funds. After our brief overview, a panel will discuss which tools they offer and how they talk about these tools with donors. Please bring your donor and fund management questions for this panel. CONCURRENT SESSIONS 1:45 pm – 2:45 pm Yerba Buena Salon 5/6 Lower B2 Level Investing in Leadership Moves Your Mission: A Conversation with a Foundation Trustee and Grantee Investing in people and the systems that support people within foundations and grantee organizations is crucial to achieving our missions, and ensuring high performance, impact and sustainability toward that end. This engaging session will introduce this important issue and offer stories and practical tools to help you invest in talent. CONCURRENT SESSIONS 1:45 pm – 2:45 pm Golden Gate C1 B2 Level Storytelling and Movement Building: Family Foundations in the Vanguard Some of the best stories in philanthropy connect a critical arc in history to profound personal stories of strength, motivation, and risk-taking. This session will mine the trajectory of two key movements: the LGBTQ community’s fight for civil rights and marriage equality, and the commitment of key funders guided by a vision for a racially just society. To celebrate defining movements in recent U.S. history, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors and StoryCorps have partnered to record and share the stories of funders and community leaders who committed to early movements, catalyzed new resources, overcame significant obstacles, and are currently engaged as the movement evolves. Session participants will experience the power of storytelling, hear about the building blocks to create a compelling story, and be encouraged to share the story of their own family’s philanthropy. KNOW & GO 1:50 pm – 2:15 pm Golden Gate C3 B2 Level Disability and Development: The Urgent Need for Inclusive Civil Society Programs Drawing on a vivid presentation of the experiences of people with disabilities, Sightsavers will explore both the challenges of living with a disability in a developing country and the opportunities for philanthropic approaches to address the stigma and discrimination that leads to marginalization and therefore contribute to more inclusive societies KNOW & GO 2:15 pm – 2:35 pm Golden Gate C3 B2 Level Smashing Silos & Pursuing Pioneers: 2 Ingredients for Multi-Issues Leadership There is no such thing as a health nonprofit or an immigration nonprofit. Every nonprofit operates at the crossroads of multiple issues, communities, geographies, sectors, strategies, and challenges. In this session, we will explore how foundations smash traditional silos that may hamper progress and pursue pioneering nonprofit leaders who work at the crossroads. 30 Council on Foundations 2015 Annual Meeting |
