Intentional Integration: Bringing Together Development, Donor Services, Finance, Program, and Marketing Departments to Engage Donors and Fulfill Charitable Goals
Program Description:
The San Francisco Foundation recently launched its Equity Agenda focused on achieving greater racial and economic equity.  In doing so it went through a significant reorganization that depends greatly on collaboration between departments to achieve the desired level of results.  For its Development and Donor Services work, it has meant working much more collaboratively with Finance, Program and Marketing departments to meet donors where they are on their philanthropic journey, and to inspire and engage donors to achieve greater alignment with the Foundation’s overall work.
