Strengthening Foundation Governance Workshop
Foundation governance has emerged as an issue of crucial importance over the past several years. Foundations play a key leadership role that goes beyond the value of the grants received. They have the flexibility to define their own priorities and set their own requirements, along with the ability to dedicate financial and human resources to address the issues they deem critical. Ultimately, the board is responsible for ensuring that the charitable resource foundations processes are effectively utilized.

To allow for greater accessibility, this event is offered as both an in-person conference and live webcast.

Join the GCE’s annual Strengthening Foundation Governance program to hear from expert speakers as they discuss the issues at the forefront of foundation governance.
