Partner Webinar: Responding to Crisis: A Conversation for Foundation CEOs and Board Leaders

Join GEO and BoardSource for a conversation with Anne Wallestad and Marcus Walton to explore how boards and executives can reflect together about what this moment requires of us as philanthropic leaders.

Event Details

GEO and BoardSource were among a number of organizations calling on foundation leaders to acknowledge and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic by increasing grant support beyond normal payout. In a follow-up post, Anne Wallestad of BoardSource outlined questions foundation boards should be asking themselves as they consider how to respond to this time of crisis: why do we exist as an institution? What values do we hold most dear? How can we identify and reconcile any perceived differences between acting based on our values/purpose and acting based on concerns about preserving endowments/assets for future needs? What do our nonprofit partners need right now? What do we want our legacy to be when we look back at this time period? We invite foundation trustees and CEOs to join a conversation with Anne Wallestad and Marcus Walton to explore how boards and executives can reflect together about what this moment requires of us as philanthropic leaders.
