LEADING TOGETHER SCHEDULE TUESDAY, APRIL 28 CONCURRENT SESSIONS 10:00 am – 11:00 am Golden Gate C1 B2 Level An Artful Approach to Community Revitalization and Public-Private Partnerships in San Francisco San Francisco is undergoing a technology industry and attendant real estate boom, which has precipitated a space crisis for arts organizations. Similar volatile market conditions impacting nonprofits exist in urban centers around the country. The Kenneth Rainin Foundation has catalyzed an unprecedented partnership between the Northern California Community Loan Fund and a variety of City of San Francisco partners to launch a new model for a nonprofit real estate holding company for arts and cultural organizations: the Community Arts Stabilization Trust (CAST). Its mission is to create stable physical spaces for arts and cultural organizations to facilitate equitable urban transformation. We will provide information on: 1. A new philanthropic model adaptable for locales or communities beyond San Francisco; 2. The New Market Tax Credits program and how it can benefit cultural organizations in real estate purchases; 3. A model for a public-private sector partnership between city agencies and a private foundation focused on community development and creative placemaking through an innovative financial strategy. CONCURRENT SESSIONS 10:00 am – 11:00 am Foothill G Second Level Making Workforce Development Work: Sustaining Effective Employer Engagement Citing ongoing concerns with meeting employer demand and expanding economic opportunity, the federal government recently announced major workforce training and employment initiatives, from implementation of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 to an unprecedented investment of $100 million to grow apprenticeships. Implemented effectively, these initiatives represent a historic opportunity for social and economic mobility and highlight the essential role of industry. But, training providers and leaders in the field readily acknowledge the ongoing challenge in sustaining meaningful employer engagement in program development. This session will provide a brief overview of the major federal initiatives and proven examples of industry partnerships. The session features speakers from multiple perspectives to discuss what works and what doesn’t when engaging employers. CONCURRENT SESSIONS 10:00 am – 11:00 am Golden Gate C2 B2 Level As the South Goes, So Goes the Nation What are the various forces at play impacting the Southern region, which makes up more than one third of the U.S. population? Join us during this session to learn how funders across the country can work in partnership to solve some of these challenges of the South. CONCURRENT SESSIONS 10:00 am – 11:00 am Yerba Buena Salon 5/6 Lower B2 Level Foundations and Political Activity: Current Rules and What’s in Store for 2015-2016 (CLE) The charitable sector was lively with Washington political activity in 2014, and 2015 is shaping up to be just as busy. This panel discussion will begin with a legal primer outlining the rules governing foundations and public charities with respect to lobbying, advocacy and other political activity. The panel will then examine the decisions that a foundation must make when considering political activity and debate some of the most common questions related to lobbying and political activity. Finally, the panelists will review recent regulatory developments and how the rules for foundations may change. KNOW & GO’S 10:05 am – 10:20 am Golden Gate C3 B2 Level A Primer on Establishing a Public-Private Partnership for Environmental Conservation What role can foundations play in environmental conservation, particularly given the changing dynamics of government and business? Pulling in examples from ocean conservation in the United States and Canada, we will walk through several successful public-private partnerships, the elements that make them effective, and how those can be replicated. 36 Council on Foundations 2015 Annual Meeting |

HOPE AND OPPORTUNITY IN A DESTABILIZED WORLD TUESDAY, APRIL 28 SCHEDULE #COFAnnual #Philanthropy The Dawn of System Leadership Since its recent publication, “The Dawn of System Leadership” article has generated significant interest with over 1,200 downloads on FSG’s website alone, has been the #1 downloaded article for several months for SSIR and has attracted a record number of over 700 attendees to a webinar session. KNOW & GO’S 10:20 am – 10:35 am Golden Gate C3 B2 Level Through compelling stories based on experiences, participants in this session will learn about the core capabilities necessary for system leadership. Be prepared to discuss some of the tools and resources participants can use to develop these skills in their own practice. Putting Civil Society into the Hands of Young People Given the severity of today’s global challenges, a robust civil society is absolutely essential to our future! It’s at the heart of all healing, yet civil society is about to take a massive turn as Boomers move out and great uncertainty moves in. This Peer Share will questions why few people take a career in the field seriously. “It’s charity” - “Not challenging” - “All volunteer” - “Doesn’t pay well” - “Nice, but not necessity.” We can’t attract entrepreneurial and enterprising top talent into this field unless we boost its appeal. Mission-driven careers need to be cool, compelling, personally and professionally fulfilling, and far more visible—especially to young people. These digital natives are inheriting a world full of trouble, but they also have unique capacity to solve today’s many pressing issues in exciting new ways! KNOW & GO’S 10:40 am – 11:00 am Golden Gate C3 B2 Level Our Future Opportunity: Philanthropy Leading Together In the face of complex challenges around the globe and in our local communities, philanthropy’s future can be defined today by how it chooses to lead as a collective. As individuals, philanthropists play a range of roles beyond funder to influence change, share ideas, connect people, and build bridges. In addition, each type of philanthropy offers unique knowledge and resources that can play an important role. As a collective, our future must be one that aggregates our diverse perspectives and unique savvy for a common purpose. At the end of the conference learning journey, be inspired to bring home the tools, ideas, and relationships from the conference as we move forward together as one community.
