Community foundations invite donors and fundholders to respond to both immediate crises and our foundations’ long-range leadership opportunities. We know how to bring the money in but how do we best steward, retain and advise those donors? How can we build long-term partnerships with them, even involving them in the planning and implementation of recovery efforts and leadership initiatives?

This webinar will provide insights from peers, share frameworks for considering your options and provide a space for you to share what you have learned in your own experiences.
