When We Say “Don’t Go It Alone,” We Mean It (VIDEO)


Every so often, I get asked for a one-sentence description of the Communications Network. Since our Fall Conference in New York City in 2009, my standard response has been, “The Network makes sure that if you’re working in foundation communications you don’t have to ‘go it alone.’”

That sentiment was summarized in a video produced at the end of that year’s conference. Even though some of the people featured are doing different things in different places today, everything they said then still rings true today (if not more so).  

As you’ll see, then and now, the Network is a community of people who are committed to helping each other make communications central to the work of philanthropy.

Watch the video to see why you don’t have to “go it alone.”
