In Fond Remembrance of Meredith Huffman

Meredith HUffmanOn July 26 we learned of the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Meredith Huffman. Meredith was deeply committed to the belief that together our philanthropy can create positive and lasting differences in the communities that we collectively serve, and has been at the very heart of Philanthropy Network and our funding community since joining the Genuardi Family Foundation as its executive director nearly a decade ago.

We are forever grateful for the gift of Meredith’s warmth, kindness, and generous spirit, and for the positive change she created for people and communities throughout our region.  Click here for details about a fund established at the Montgomery County Foundation Inc. in her honor.


The Forum launches new name and vision

At its annual meeting in July, the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers unveiled its new identity as the United Philanthropy Forum. The new name signifies a strategic shift that expands the Forum’s membership to include national philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs). Under the new membership structure, the Forum serves a hub for Philanthropy Network and our place-based association peers alongside national partners to create stronger connections and increase access to expertise and content that will help Network members increase the impact of their philanthropy. With a membership of 60 regional and national PSOs and growing, the Forum is now the largest network serving philanthropy in America, representing more than 7,000 foundations and other philanthropic organizations.  Visit the new Forum website to learn more.
