This month, Full Circle Fund kicks off a new strategic partnership with The San Francisco Foundation (TSFF) that will offer our Members and extended community more robust and dynamic opportunities to engage in philanthropy.
Through this partnership, our Members will learn from The San Francisco Foundation's many years of deep knowledge, expertise, and leadership in the region and will help inform our grantmaking efforts. Program Officers with decades of experience in asset building, community, new educational models, climate change, and how to build thriving communities will join us to share perspectives and to also learn from our Members, many of whom are active leaders in the social sector.
The first event The San Francisco Foundation is hosting with Full Circle Fund is the Inaugural Grant Partner Idea Lab, open exclusively to Members, Grant Partners, and guests of The San Francisco Foundation. At the Idea Lab, each 2013 Grant Partner will propose an issue area, or "problem," and Members and guests will split up into groups to dissect each issue and come up with an innovative solution.
We are thrilled about this union, and know a lot of innovation, energy, and ideas will come of it. Cheers to a beautiful friendship!
