SECF member CEOs hold a unique decision-making role in our region, guiding grantmaking with an eye toward long-term goals. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, has changed this calculus. In times of crisis, foundation leaders now need to make decisions involving millions of dollars that must be deployed rapidly and effectively.
In addition to these unprecedented circumstances, we are also unable to connect in the usual ways. Even in these extraordinary times, however, SECF wants to ensure philanthropic leaders in our region can stay connected and benefit from collective wisdom and shared insights.
These monthly, virtual gatherings will provide you and your peers with the opportunity to receive input from one another and discuss the unique challenges and responsibilities of foundation leadership in a time of unprecedented need.
Each conversation will feature 1-2 CEOs who will share about their organizational responses to COVID-19. The two CEOs will engage in conversation with each other and then facilitate a conversation with all attendees for the remainder of the call.
Calls will be peer-led and peer-facilitated by SECF member CEOs. SECF staff will manage logistics of all calls and collect materials to be shared with CEOs afterward.
