Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

National Summit on Volunteerism

In July 2017, more than 500 professionals in various capacities of volunteer management joined together to discuss and map the future of the field at the first national summit in more than 10 years.  A major goal of the summit was to reestablish a network to support and professionalize volunteerism in the sector. The Lodestar Foundation provided a grant to fund a portion of the event planning and production efforts.
