Community

The Communications Network is made up of leaders from the world's most influential nonprofits and foundations who share a common belief: organizations that communicate well are more effective at advancing their missions, improving lives, and delivering change.

Learning

A few decades ago, a communicator's toolkit included a press release, an annual report, and perhaps a few brochures.  But today's foundations and nonprofits have had to wade through a dizzying array of new tools and adapt to the increasing recognition that smart communications is central to success in the social sector.

LEADERSHIP

As communicators navigate this challenging and ever-evolving landscape, The Communications Network provides them with a community of like-minded experts and professionals, learning resources to help them do better work, and connections to leadership across the world's most influential nonprofits and foundations.
