NCCF was excited to host affiliate foundation presidents and grants chairs at an all-day forum Oct. 22 designed to share best practices from across the state and to hear preliminary recommendations from the FUTURES Committee.

Nearly all affiliates were represented at the all-day meeting held at Marbles Museum in downtown Raleigh. Panel presentations on effective grantmaking, board recruitment and building the community (nonrestrictive fund) showcased some of the work of our affiliate partners.

A presentation on the work of the FUTURES Committee by Board Chair James W. Narron, CEO Jennifer Tolle Whiteside and Steve Eckstrom, consultant, reviewed the changing landscape for community foundations, outlined recommendations and presented next steps for affiliate leadership, board and staff to consider. More to come on this and the Forum!
