Bringing the Next Decade Blog to a close…

4 01 2011

As 2011 begins, this Next Decade Blog comes to a close.

Throughout 2010, I talked one-on-one to well over 100 individuals about the future of philanthropy and the future of The Denver Foundation. I have heard hundreds of insightful ideas and suggestions.

At this point, I feel a bit overwhelmed. I plan to spend a considerable amount of time thinking about, organizing, and synthesizing what I have heard. All of the work of the Next Decade Project will then feed into The Denver Foundation’s new Strategic Plan.

In January, The Denver Foundation will begin a new Strategic Planning process. An important part of that process will be a Listening Campaign that will include many opportunities for public input.

The next Denver Foundation Strategic Plan is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2011, with implementation to commence in January, 2012.

I am enormously grateful to everyone who helped with and participated in the Next Decade Project this past year. I wish all of you a happy, healthy, and fulfilling New Year – and decade!

— David Miller, President and CEO, The Denver Foundation
