Were excited to introduce you to Candid Learning, where you can build skills to improve your fundraising, overall sustainability, grantmaking, and transparency. To register for our events and webinars, you will need to join or log in to Candid Learning. It takes just a few minutes, and its free to do.

Community foundations continue to take on an increasingly diverse set of roles beyond grantmaking, including serving as knowledge brokers, nonprofit capacity builders, coalition builders, and more broadly, community leaders. As community foundations become more active players in creating positive impact by embracing these and other roles, the field’s desire to track this journey beyond the use of traditional financial metrics has grown. CF Insights, a service of Candid, has created a new free resource to help your community foundation do just that.  

Join CF Insights, our colleagues at CFLeads, and leaders from the Delaware Community Foundation and the Rochester Area Community Foundation as we discuss the development of the new Community Leadership Assessment Tool. Well cover how the tool builds on data collected through CF Insights’ Columbus Survey and recent research by CFLeads to tell a more complete story of the field and how to use it to track your community foundation’s progress along several dimensions of community leadership. We’ll also share ways you can leverage its findings in conversations with staff and your board to inform strategic decision-making.

A special event for community foundation staff.
