Retreat for all board members and directors of Kansas community foundations featuring a National expert Bryan Clontz, CFPR Charitable
Solutions, LLC with a program on Typology of Community Foundations. Followed by the KACF 2012 Legislative Reception.

Topic: “Four Operating Models of Community Foundations.” Have
you ever wondered why people say – “If you have seen one community foundation, you have seen one community foundation!” And when talking with your regional or national colleagues, you think they are speaking a completely different language. It is because the intentional or unintentional operating model for a specific community foundation can change everything – the kinds of donors, funds, grants, policies, fees and staff. This interactive session will cover the four most common operating models and the positive and negative implications for each one. Some have called this session – “the community foundation decoder ring.” But no attendee has ever left without viewing community foundations in a completely different way!

The retreat will be followed by the legislative reception, come to learn and to network with your peers, to enjoy the breathtaking view of our Capitol and to meet with Kansas legislators.

Funding for the Retreat comes from the KACF grant from the Kansas Health Foundation http://www.kansashealth.org/
