Add to Calendar

Our philanthropic practices, including how we interact with each other and with our partners, are an expression of our organizational culture. It’s important that we take time to consider how our cultures affect who we are in the world, and that we see where we might be able to make changes that will allow us to align our culture and behaviors.

While culture can be an amorphous topic, this call will allow participants to hear from Carrie Avery, a longtime philanthropic leader in California, who holds organizational culture as the key to the success of her foundation. After hearing from Carrie about how the Durfee Foundation’s values are demonstrated in their philanthropic practice, we will have an in-depth discussion about how to best support your efforts to build, sustain, and strengthen a productive culture in your organization.

Carrie Avery
The Durfee Foundation
