About this grant

This grant provides continued general purpose support to CFLeads, an organization which aims to build the leadership capacity of community foundations. In 2007, the grantee was chosen as the main implementation partner to foster community leadership by the Council on Foundations’ Community Foundations Leadership Team. During the past year, the grantee created and managed the work of a high-profile National Task Force on Community Leadership, which developed two frameworks on community leadership — one for individual community foundations and one for the field. The grantee also launched two community leadership networks which in total include representatives from 17 community foundations. In 2009, CFLeads will complete the work of the two existing community leadership networks and launch two new ones. It will also publish and promote the use of the National Task Force on Community Leadership’s frameworks throughout the community foundation field and prepare a two-day curriculum on public policy for community foundations.
