Ways to Engage

June 10th Webinar Recording




Engaging the Next Generation in Community Foundations and  the “New Philanthropy”



June 10, 2020 from 2:00-3:00 PM EST


Join Aneil Gokhale, Director of Philanthropy and Sharon Avery, CEO to learn about the Toronto Foundation’s vision and programming for a young and diverse group of donors who are willing to establish funds, engage in impact investing and be part of the next generation of philanthropy in their city. In 2018, Toronto Foundation launched a “philanthropic MBA program” for a group of millennial and gen x donors, recruiting 115 to join the first cohort and another 100 to join the next edition. Through their learning journey, these fundholders are living out Toronto Foundation’s vision of “a City of informed, engaged philanthropists accelerating meaningful change for all.”


Learning Objectives:

1. Identify the opportunity within your local community (size will vary, and that is ok!)

2. Understand the specifics of how the Toronto program was constructed, what was learned and critical success factors needed to make it a success

3. Hear from program participants that can share their first-hand experience of the opportunity and what they learned from it
