Investing in Nonprofit Leadership

The Foellinger Foundation of Fort Wayne, Indiana supports nonprofit organizations in Allen County with the goal of encouraging a community of self-reliant citizens. A key ingredient in the foundation’s strategy is a suite of programs designed to strengthen its place-based giving by developing and enhancing the leadership skills of nonprofit staff and board members. This webinar will begin with an interview of former Foellinger Foundation President and current Board Member Cheryl Taylor, conducted by Joanne Florino of The Philanthropy Roundtable. Following the interview, participants will join breakout sessions to discuss Foellinger’s work and how they might apply lessons-learned to their own circumstances. Nonprofits across the country are facing many challenges, and we all benefit when those organizations are led by an adaptive board and key staff members who promote self-reliance and build community.
