Avila Kilmurray & Lew Feldstein (ed) TCFN
A TCFN working group defined the various non-grantmaking roles community foundations play and the obstacles to playing such roles, and seeks specific examples of successful leadership roles community foundation have played. The group established that there are common nongrantmaking roles and leadership activities performed by community foundations within our working group, and increasingly, around the world. The group identified issues that are central to better understanding how and why community foundations engage in leadership roles. The issues selected were also ones for which there is very little literature specific to community foundations. The group looked at a variety of ways to
compile this information and to make it accessible to the field.
