The Value of a Theory of the Foundation: Jarrett Lucas, Stonewall Community Foundation

This is a sneak peek of content from GrantCraft's soon-to-be-published leadership series paper, Frameworks for Private Foundations: A New Model for Impact. Stay tuned for more on this topic!

This podcast is part of GrantCraft’s Theory of the Foundation series, which explores the role and purpose of foundations and offers a framework for introspection on three core elements – charter, social compact, and operating capabilities – that together shape a foundation’s structure and approach.

Though all foundations are different, having a deeper understanding of these common elements can help foundations to more effectively align purpose, public benefit, and action. 

In this episode you’ll hear the voice of Jarrett Lucas, executive director of the Stonewall Community Foundation, who discusses the value of regular institutional introspection and how the theory of the foundation can be adapted for use by a community foundation.
