11.00-12.15 Sparking our collective imagination

We will have had two days of thought-provoking and challenging discussion about the challenges and opportunities for community foundations in the future.  We have been challenged to think long term, to imagine adjacent possibilities and be generational funders. What does that mean in the community foundation context? How can we straddle the need for business as usual and create the third horizon? Together, we shall imagine the potential for the future of community foundations.
