Randy Kuhlman, CEO of the Fort Dodge Community Foundation and United Way, has been invited to serve as a guest panelist at an upcoming national conference on community foundations and philanthropy. The panel is a part of Emerging Research on Community Foundations and Philanthropy in the U.S. and Beyond: A Workshop at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy in Indianapolis on March 31 and April 1, 2016.

Workshop attendees will hear the latest research on community foundations and community philanthropy through presentations by school faculty and staff and a number of community foundation leaders from around the country, including Kuhlman.

Kuhlman will serve as an expert on one of the four panels at the workshop, discussing the role of community foundations in building effective collaborations and partnerships with other funders and institutions of community giving to advance community development.

The Fort Dodge Community Foundation and United Way is a nationally unique philanthropic organization. In July 2007, United Way of Greater Fort Dodge and the Community Foundation of Fort Dodge and North Central Iowa merged into one philanthropic organization. Both organizations shared a common mission – to advance the common good and improve the quality of life of people in our community and region through charitable giving. This partnership has provided the opportunity to leverage resources and reduce duplication in philanthropy. This collaborative model is the first of its kind in the nation and offers our community and region a “one-stop shop” for community-based charitable giving.
