As a community foundation grows, it gets pulled in multiple, competing directions. Those competing directions can harm its financial sustainability and the clarity of its value proposition to the community and donors. A clearer path to growth comes when the foundation is aligned toward a primary operating model. Building on their presentation at the 2019 CFC Conference, this is the first of two webinars by Ekstrom Alley Clontz & Associates’ on the Four Quadrants operating model framework, the reasons why foundations choose each model, and trends in philanthropy and the community foundation field challenging each model.
This webinar will be recorded and posted on our site following its conclusion.
