2020 Community Foundations Peer Retreat
Working in a community foundation can sometimes feel like you’re a lone unicorn amidst the philanthropic landscape. You understand the fundraising process and, with a focus on place, you build personal relationships that can help identify pockets of need within a community that may otherwise be overlooked. Maryland Community Foundations Association (MCFA) is excited to host the 2020 Community Foundations Peer Retreat to bring all you unicorns together.
The 2020 Community Foundations Peer Retreat provides a unique opportunity for community foundation professionals across the state to reflect on current strategies and approaches, strengthen relationships within a network of people who understand the challenges, and collaborate on sustainable solutions to advance community well-being.
Whether you are in the first months of your new position or have been at this work for years, this retreat will offer a safe and supportive space to help you determine what is working well and where challenges remain.
Together, as MCFA, we speak with one voice in promoting philanthropy to benefit towns, cities and rural areas across the state. Community Foundations specialize in helping individuals, families and businesses plan and carry out their charitable giving; and in building endowments to serve their regions' changing needs.
An agenda will be sent in advance.
This convening is for Maryland Community Foundation Association members only. Details about how to book lodging are forthcoming.
