Work on the Future of Community Philanthropy project will continue throughout 2008.  During the year, we will continue our research, share our findings through conference presentations and selected community foundation workshops, publish periodic briefings and updates about emerging issues, and begin inquiry into the international phase of the project.

We are available to present at a select number of conferences during the year. We will also be working with a limited number of community foundations to apply project ideas and tools to their specific settings. If you are interested in having us speak at your event or work with your organization, please contact us at
