Upcoming events for Jewish Funders Network, and selected third-party events of interest to JFN members.

  • Next Gen Board Leadership Training (Third Party Event)

    Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 06:00 PM EDT through June 21, 2018
    The Jewish Museum in New York, NY

    Five consecutive weekly evening sessions, Thursday nights from May 24th – June 21st, 6 PM – 9 PM ET.

    Dinner will be served.

    Who Should Attend? Millennials and Gen Xers currently serving or preparing to serve on a nonprofit board.

    Cost: $1,800 participant fee.

    Nonprofit board participation is a big responsibility, and individuals joining boards for the first time can feel unprepared to adopt the role of board member with confidence. 21/64 has partnered with The Paul and Jenna Segal Foundation to create a course that empowers the next generation to serve as leaders, and to acquire the skills and know-how to be successful board members. 

    The course will be a fusion of experiential learning and purposeful skill building, designed to cultivate the next generation of board members who are well informed and trained to take on the role of board member effectively. Rather than reinventing the wheel by offering just another course pertaining to board governance, this course will layer on a critically important generational lens and allow next gen participants to find their voice and learn about their unique opportunity to lead.
