Program Background:

Over the course of a year, Philanthropy New York's Leadership Transitions Funders Group has engaged a group of NYC-based funders in building a community of practice. The goal has been to strengthen funder practices around supporting nonprofits going through leadership transitions and to more broadly address transition patterns or moments as they arise within the movements/fields we support.

What we’ve learned about funder behavior and funder practices transcends the space of supporting leadership transitions. In other words, adopting holistic funding practices and supporting organizational capacity strengthens the nonprofit sector, period.  

As we come to a close on a year of learning and shifting practice together, we are excited to continue the conversation on a national scale, with the launch of Leading Forward, a national community of practice focused on more equitable leadership transitions in the nonprofit sector.

Program Overview:

Join us for this exclusive one-on-one conversation that will share field learnings from an existing funder collaborative that supports leadership transitions and a funder engaged in the work separately as they make the case for funder learning organizing in this space.

What will we do together?

  • Hear from speakers who will share their journeys in supporting leadership transitions and how it continues to align with their broader equity goals
  • Commit to sharing and lifting up lessons and experiences in supporting leadership transitions - before, during, and after
  • Learn how to get connected on a national scale to strengthen your regional work

Who should attend?

All interested funders in grantmaking roles. What to expect: roundtable and breakout discussions.
