2018 Community Foundation Boot Camps

The two-day Community Foundation Boot Camp program offers a comprehensive overview of the structure and operations of a community foundation.  It is an ideal in-depth introduction to community foundations for new community foundation staff, community foundation board members, or other community foundation staff looking for a good refresher. Topics covered include:  

  • History, purpose
  • Board governance
  • Gifts and funds
  • Asset development
  • Grantmaking
  • Community leadership
  • Finance and investments
  • Legal Issues
  • Operational sustainability
  • Lifecycles of community foundations

United Philanthropy Forum is pleased to offer this program at a member rate to any community foundation that is a member of one of the Forum’s members. The training will be provided by our colleagues at the Indiana Philanthropy Alliance (IPA).  IPA, thanks to ongoing support from Lilly Endowment Inc., offers a training and technical assistance program for community foundations, known as GIFT, and has a comprehensive curriculum and experienced trainers.
