Grow your network. Lead the way. Be the change.

Our PLACES Fellowship is a transformational leadership development experience that gives professionals in philanthropy the tools, knowledge, and best practices needed to embed an equity lens into their work.

PLACES fellows embark on a year-long process focused on creating more equitable neighborhoods and communities — and learning how to turn ideals into outcomes.

PLACES Fellows:
▪ Are dedicated to creating more equitable, diverse and inclusive neighborhoods and communities.
▪ Want to build peer relationships with other leaders in philanthropy.
▪ Have a broad range of philanthropic experience, come from diverse backgrounds, and hail from cities and communities both large and small.
▪ Are passionate about solving problems related to community, equity, and smart growth.
▪ Want to enhance grantmaking decisions in ways that are responsive to the needs and assets of historically marginalized communities, most specifically low-income neighborhoods and communities of color.
