IPA is pleased to offer Community Foundation Boot Camp virtually, to foundations across the country. 

This training provides staff and board members with an overview of the structure and operations of a community foundation, covering nearly every aspect of this unique work.

Community foundations are complex organizations. For more than 25 years, IPA has housed a dedicated program that offers specialized assistance to over 90 community foundations in Indiana. These foundations have achieved impressive sustainability, play significant leadership roles in communities, and have grown their assets to almost $4 billion. IPA now offers its highly-regarded Community Foundation Boot Camp curriculum to audiences across the United States. 

This training has been presented by IPA to over a thousand participants in recent years in partnership with the United Philanthropy Forum, Southeast Council of Foundations, Iowa Council of Foundations, League of California Community Foundations, Philanthropy Colorado, North Carolina Network of Grantmakers, and the Florida Philanthropic Network.
