Atlanta Foundations Forum

The Atlanta Foundations Forum is an informal group of funders in metro Atlanta who regularly gather to discuss ideas, innovations, issues and best practices that influence grantmaking in and around the city. 

Atlanta Foundations Forum events often feature foundation leaders and grantees discussing their partnerships, as well as community leaders connected to the causes supported by philanthropy. 

The Forum is led by a volunteer SECF member who serves as a convener and recruits participating foundation(s) to host each meeting. The Host and Convener select the topic and speakers. Atlanta Foundations Forum meetings and events are open to all trustees and staff of grantmaking organizations in the metro Atlanta region.

Recent Atlanta Foundations Forum events include:

  • A discussion of health care and related public policy with Grady Health System President &
    CEO John Haupert.
  • A panel discussion on arts education featuring Christopher Moses (Alliance Theatre),
    Danes Rameau (Atlanta Music Project) and Dana Lupton (Moving in the Spirit).
  • Social Enterprise, featuring Goizueta Business School Professor, Peter Roberts.
