Over the course of the year, the Foundation hosts fundholder listening opportunities. We just completed our five summer sessions. The agenda is quite simple: we use these gatherings as a way to update our fundholders on what’s going on at the Foundation and solicit feedback from them. These sessions are typically small with 10 to 12 participants and last about an hour and a half. There is usually a diversity of fund types represented including donor advised, scholarship, legacy, and nonprofit agency. There is also a wide range of philanthropic passions in the room. In one session alone, there were strong advocates for the homeless, the environment, foster youth, the arts, animals and education. Some of the attendees are relatively new fundholders while others have had an established fund for years.
