Neighborhood Funders Group and Aspen Institute Forum for Community Solutions are excited to launch the second year of our Leadership for Change Fellowship for CEOs of progressive philanthropic institutions. This second cohort will add to the original 16 cohort members from the first year, an annually growing network of visionary CEO leaders who share a belief in a model of community partnership that centers community knowledge and power building.
Together, Fellows will be strategic thought partners, with a dedicated space to organize together, boldly envisioning and advancing the transformed future of philanthropy. A future that centers and achieves equity and social justice. Philanthropy Forward Fellows will be unlocking the challenges to philanthropy and realizing its fullest role as a collective financial engine for social change.
Ultimately, the intention is to emerge with a collective identity as a financial engine for social change focusing on community centered strategies, centering long term impacts, and advancing justice, equity and power.
